Description Edit | History

Devil's Cauldron is a company level simulation of the Northern two drop zones in Operation Market Garden. It is loosely based on an old Victory Games game called Panzer Command.

Command and control is emphasized in this system and the game includes extensive documentation and historical background.

Components include 4 linking maps (for the grand campaign) and three smaller gamettes (on Arnhem, the Island and Groesbeek Heights - each with its own rules and map). 1600 counters (of which roughly 700 are actual combat units) and attendant documentation.

Play time for the various games range from one hour all the way up to 50 or so for the grand campaign.

Contents:
•4 23.5"x35.5" map-sheets 3 of which are back-printed w/scenario maps
•3 9"x12" map extensions (adding useful areas which were "just off" the area covered by the 4 map-sheets)
•11 sheets of 5/8" die-cut full-color counters
•1 counter-sheet of 1" die-cut full-color counters
•Series Rulebooks (1 detailed; 1 "quick start")
•TDC exclusive rulebook
•Historical booklet
•8 full-color divisional displays
•2 CRT/TEC Charts and Tables
•1 Game Turn Chart
•4 10-sided dice

12 New scenario: Saga of the 82nd Airborne
This is a new scenario which covers the 82nd Airborne Division's sector over the first 4 days of the operation, and especially the Allied attempt to secure Nijmegen and a Waal crossing. Because the German player doesn't get to do much except defend, it plays quickly and works quite well for solitaire play.
