Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German tactics failed inside the confines of Stalingrad as the Russians were able to dig in and fight from every building. The confines of the city stifled manoeuvre, and German superiority in artillery, air power, and armor were rendered ineffective as the infantry of both sides intermingled while fighting for each block of the city. This was Rattenkrieg the war of the rats.

2020-02-09(D) Tim Wiegmann vs Jonas Warias German winIn a rather embarrassing performance, the Russian commander confused the victory conditions and stalwartly defended an unimportant building. Nice game nonetheless.
2019-12-08(D) Jacob Elmqvist vs Ingemar Gardell Russian win
2019-11-17(A) Jonathan Kapleau vs Ritter, Lew German win
2019-09-23(D) David Garvin vs Nick Faryna German winNick is a new player. His initial turn was typical for a new player: plenty of prep fire and no results. He quickly ramped up the aggressive nature required to attack and ended up in one turn engaging in 4 (four!) close combat attacks against me. In each attack he had the better odds and ended up taking out the objective buildings in quick succession on turns 4 to 6. Great match!
2019-09-14(A) David Garvin vs David Hughes German win
