Description Edit | History

Tide of Iron is a game of World War II tactical conflict for two to four players. The components in this base game allow players to simulate the dramatic struggle that took place between American and German forces in Northern Europe during the years 1944 and 1945.

Tide of Iron is a scenario-based game, with the available forces, objectives, map, and victory conditions being set by each given scenario. It features loads of plastic figures, including soldiers, equipment, heavy weapons, and combat vehicles, cards, dice, cardboard markers, and modular game boards that will represent the customizable terrain of this scenario-based wargame.

The twelve double-sided map tiles, plus the dozens of included terrain hexes, allow for limitless potential combinations, and each scenario can be enhanced by special rules, objective markers, troop allotments, and other variations. The only limiting factor is your imagination!


Tide of Iron was released by Fantasy Flight Games in 2006.
Tide of Iron: Next Wave was released under license by 1A Games in 2013.

5 Capture the Observation Post
Artillery in Stalingrad was ever present on both sides of the battle. As a result, good observation posts in the crumbling city were of great value and enemy observation posts were prime attack targets. So it was that this cold autumn morning of 1942, men of the 29th Motorized Infantry Division, assaulted a nearby Soviet observation post. However, the Soviets just wouldn’t stand idle by.

4 Battle of Avranches
In July 1944, the fourth armored division was told to get to Avranches along with the second infantry division. Combat Command B approached from the West and the East. The Eastern column was comprised mostly of mechanized infantry, and they came under heavy fire from Panzers on a hill overlooking the town. Six half-tracks were almost immediately destroyed. The Americans brought up their Anti-Tank guns and destroyed the Panzers and take the hill, but it was an all day battle. The Western column had an easier time of it, passing a German headquarters set up in a building, while the Germans fled, before turning South and continuing on.

4 Tide of Iron Scenario Spreadsheet Editor
The excel spreadsheet editor has been improved! Now specializations, strategy cards, and operations cards change according to what expansion is used. Set the expansion used on the top left of the input sheet and available specializations, strategy and operations cards change accordingly. Use less ink to print your scenario. Use tileset to make the map and print it on the back. Spelling mistakes corrected. Version 1.6

4 Counterattack at Mortain
Operation Luttrich was given to Field Marshall Von Kluge, who knew it would not work. But to oppose Hitler could mean death. He moved the Xlvii Panzer Corps to Mortain to take the town and it's crossroads. The Americans took the hill, which gave an overlook to the entire surrounding area. As supplies of even bullets dwindled, the Americans called in artillery strike after strike, and P-38 airstrikes, until the weakened German forces withdrew. The battle is yours. Created on my spreadsheet scenario editor.
