More Information Edit | History

from The Avalon Hill Company History, 1980

Battle of the Bulge (1965) Discontinued 1981
Designed by Lawrence Pinsky
Development by Tom Shaw

BULGE was the last of the “classics”—a term more applicable to nostalgia and the time period from which it evolved, than any standardized game system, for BULGE was a step beyond the simple “DB2” mode of STALINGRAD and WATERLOO. Always popular as a game, in later years it was roundly criticized for its lack of historical accuracy. It was discontinued in 1981 after having sold over 120,000 copies. It was replaced by an entirely different game designed by Bruno Sinigaglio and developed by Mick Uhl.
