When i was looking up miniatures and playing with the ones i have my dad was asking about them and looking at the info on the cards etc. he went to the basement into his wargame collection and pulled up two "book case games" - Panzer Leader and Panzer Blitz. interestingly enough both of those games and A&AM are made be avalon hill. so i was wondering possibly that is where a lot of their basis for this game was because the rules are pretty similar, with the exceptions of size of forces, maps, turns, etc. just a cool thing i thought i'd share, if anyone elso knows the two games i'm talking about.

I have seen one copy of Panzer Blitz - I have heard it is a great game. It was printed in the 70s I think.

I remember another game from the 70s called "Tank Battle" - kind of a Stratego type of board game. It pitted the Sherman M4a3 against the Panther G5 - there were game pieces for the tanks and fuel depots and a battle map type board.

I've wondered the same thing myself, from the other side. I collect this series of old Avalon Hill games, & these days I'm looking at getting into A&A minis. Suppose I'll find out for sure when/if I actually invest in it (time being even more difficult to invest for me than the money part).

In the 80s, these games were consolidated into Advanced Squad Leader, & the rights eventually sold to Multiman Publishing, which continues to make new stuff. It is perhaps the most complicated game ever made.

If I ever do actually buy into A&A minis, I expect I'll discover the rules are similar to the old games in spirit, but not in exact mechanics or numbers. That is, they probably no longer own the rights to the original rules, & the old rules are too complex for A&A minis.

The basics of the game are fairly simple, easy to remember as such, but there are a few 'advanced rules' and you will always run ito odd situations where you may need to ask a question about how to proceed but it is pretty straight forward Smile
