Description Edit | History

Band of Brothers: Ghost Panzer is a fast playing game of squad level combat in WWII. It covers the exploits of the German 11th Panzer Division in Russia from 1941 to 1944. The rules are very simple (no combat charts are needed) with very few exceptions to remember and yet the game is meant to be all encompassing and will include infantry, tanks, and artillery.

Based on years of research, the game system uses a unique suppression mechanic. There are no longer two unique states for a unit, but varying degrees of suppression. This allows suppression to accumulate from multiple fire sources and means that the unit will not take a morale check until it is asked to do something. You will never know for sure how your units will respond until they are needed.

Although casualties can be caused by artillery and heavy weapons (which makes them prime battlefield targets), squads will never cause significant casualties shooting at range at dug in, first line troops. Their goal is to fire and maneuver. Sections of the enemy force must be pinned down and eliminated from up close. The system itself forces this realistic play. In a similar fashion, the system rewards you for spreading your troops out and other realistic game play.

Another unique feature of the game is its use of Proficiency and Casualty ratings to differentiate squads in areas besides just morale.

Ghost Panzer is a STAND ALONE GAME, but is also the second in a series.

Band of Brothers: Screaming Eagles was the first in the series and followed the U.S. 101st Airborne Division.

Other games under research are "The Old Breed" (the US 1st Marine Division) and a module that follows Commonwealth forces.

27 Scenario Quick Choice Guide
A listing of all Band of Brothers scenarios (that I could find) with some statistics, so you can quickly choose which scenario to play depending on the mood you're in (a short skirmish, a tight fight, infantry only because you haven't learned the vehicle rules yet,...). In the "Source" column there are hyperlinks ("bonus", "@BGG") to the non-boxed contents. The paper size is a compromise between Letter and A4 (taking the shortest dimensions of both) so that it can be printed at 100% on both paper sizes (and cropped as needed to fit in the box).

42 Player Aid Card - Consistent Modifiers
This is a revision of the Player Aid Card that primarily changes all modifiers to apply to the target number, rather than the die roll (i.e. reverses their signs). With this aid, positive modifiers are always bonuses to the check and negative modifiers are always penalties. If you wish all modifiers were consistent with the change Ghost Panzer made to Firepower, this aid completes that change. Additionally, other formatting and text revisions were made for clarity. V2.0CM.2: • Changed Fire Result text to be consistent with the better wording in the rule book, rather than the original player aid card. • A few more spelling and formatting corrections.

34 Rules Change History Document
This document tracks and explains the rule changes in the Band of Brothers series. A couple of minor things were tweaked in the reprint, but the big change was the streamlining and removing of die rolls in the Proficiency rule. Several examples are given on how this will impact play as well as Designer notes on the changes.
