This is the game that brought me back into wargaming and as such I have an irrational attachment to it. Maybe isn't doesn't model the period too well but I had a lot of fun with it.

This is one great game!I played it a lot, from both perspectives it is a real challenge. Usually I gathered all my stosstruppen in one great bunch and had a go at either the French (between Reims and Verdun) or the British (anywhere, but Ypres is a plum) or both (right there in the middle and aim for Paris). And yes, there were times I reached Paris or when my opponent folded beacause of losses suffered. If the first offensive failed, you could not hold out of course, so I always wondered what the Plan 1919 varatnt was for.But a friend of mine (well, actually ...) showed me a better way. Just make sure you capture Verdun and then let the Allies come on. They have so few infiltration capable troops, even after receiving all reinforcements, that near full strength Germans can easily repulse or slow them so that they will win in the long run! If only I had thought of that.And now I even get to use the Fuller Plan alternative. Oh boy, my cup runneth over ...

This game really captures the feel of the 1918 battles - the Germans seem unstoppable, then run out of resources. A great game.

Excellent game, highly highly playable and fun. A go to game for me when I want a simple classic style game. Sure the tank units and infiltration are a bit 'off scale', but it gives a great feel and good play. Have seen both sides win, many strategies to try. Enjoy it!

Classic Ted Raicer/Command magazine game. This game explores the 1918 German offensive using Stoss troops in an effort to shatter the front open and end the war quickly. A hard to find classic.

One of the first hex & counter I have played.

The Combat Table it's unforgettable!

I think the first game of the father of Paths of Glory with strong help from Ty Bomba. Fun, tense and bloody. The birth of a legend.

Ted Raicer impressed me with this game. Clean, simple, fast playing and tense. Extremely good value for a magazine game. Certainly better than 95% of wargames which are published in a box.

In fact it was so good I mounted it on old AH boards I still have in stock. Excellent game for a magazine, up there with magazine blockbusters like Panzergruppe Guderian and Ney vs Wellington.

As the Germans, actually slugged it out in Paris with the French and Americans. As the Allies, don't leave holes in your lines or the Stosstruppen will have a party in Gay Parrie.' Allies have it rough, at first. Very good replay value.

One of Commands better ones. It didn't capture the events of 1918 wholly, since the Germans launched in autumn 1918 three major offensives on three different locations on three different points in time by surprise.

In 1918: SitW you usually place all your stosstruppen on one place in the front - the British sector is the most likely candidate - and let's go for it. Besides there is not much to gain when the French breakthrough in their sector since there aren't much cities to gain and there aren't any consequences when the French reaches the eastern mapboard. Also high odds attacks - at least 5:1 - are needed in order to achieve success.

However I did enjoy the game. It's not unnecessary difficult and have some clever mechanics suchs as infiltration movement, the double combat phase and locked-in- zone-of-controls.

Last played this quite a long time ago, but I remember being pretty impressed that this game covering WWI on the western front was actually pretty fun and swift to play. Was surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did.

Update... recently played, and was reminded what a good game this is!

The first of Ted Raicer's many WWI games, and the game which first opened the wargame crowd's eyes to the fact that exciting games could actually be made about WWI. I haven't played this in a long time, but I have fond memories of it.

Good game with a tight schedule for the Germans to make their Stosstruppen do their bit to take as much ground as quickly as possible. The Allies need to hold on and avoid defeat before the Stormtroopers run out of steam and the Americans arrive in force.

This had the feeling of blitzkrieg in 1918. One wonders how historical it was - the stosstruppen formations are certainly formidable at carving their way through defences in this game - but there's no end of excitement here.
