Description Edit | History

This is part of the Standard Combat Series.

(from MMP website:)

Bastogne is a game covering the defense of the little crossroads town of Bastogne from 18 December to 26 December 1944. It is not a game about the whole Ardennes Offensive, but rather a close-up look at the actual perimeter battle to protect the town and the mechanized delaying actions leading into it. The map only extends as far east as Longvilly and north to Noville at 400m per hex. Each turn is a day, units are generally companies.

Bastogne comes with special rules for road marching, Team SNAFU, barrages, and air strikes - but is built around a quick-to-play, simple-to-learn framework. Bastogne has three scenarios: an introductory scenario covering the Battle for Noville, a medium-sized one covering the Battle for Longvilly, and the withdrawal of Team Cherry plus the counterattack by the 501st Airborne Regiment, and the campaign game itself covering the whole action in a jam-packed 10 turns. A number of variants have been provided so you can experience the game over and over looking at fresh insights.

6 Bastogne graphic German order of arrival (8.5x14)
Same as the 8.5x11 version but for legal-sized paper. Everything fits on one sheet. The 8.5x11 version is odd in that there is a lot of wasted space on the 2nd sheet.

7 Bastogne graphic German order of arrival (8.5x11)
A German order of arrival depicting images of the units involved. This version prints on two 8.5x11 sheets of paper.

8 Bastogne graphic at start & US Order of Arrival
This is a set-up and reinforcement file that depicts the units involved. I've always found it difficult to just read the unit designations. It also includes a turn sequence, a copy of the CRT and KG removal VP and US artillery

12 Counter Tray organization
I use a 12 boxes counter tray. Even if you use a different counter tray, the tool is useful to get counters sorted out when you finish a game.
