Each battle in Army Group South is simulated on a map portraying the actual terrain fought over, across which cardboard playing pieces move through a superimposed hexagonal grid. Simple probability charts determine the outcome of various game functions.
Kiev - General Kleist's First Panzer Army attacks from the south to surround 600,000 Soviets.
Rostov - the Germans take Rostov, but within weeks are forced out by waves of Soviet infantry attacks.
Operation Star - Von Manstein's Panzers, pushed to their limit, secure Kharkov once again.
Korsun - from the largest German pocket since Stalingrad, only half the trapped German soldiers escape.
