LOVE the Panzer/88/Armor system. I prefer plotted movement over the marker system in MBT/IDF and the newest iteration of Panzer. Modified MBT/IDF to use Panzer command sheets.

Yaquinto original is a classic. Excalibur's reprint is a poor substitute.

88, Panzer and Armor...my first real wargame system. I still like to play these after 20 some years.

Q: How much of your rating is nostalgia based?

A: I think that "very little" is the correct answer. Yes, it was a good time in my life when I was playing alot of this but I still enjoy it very much today.

Q: If not nostalgia then why do you like it so?

A: I have always enjoyed the concept of armored vehicle warfare ever since I was pushing around little green tanks and men on the living room floor. Yeah, I still do that but I meant in a nongame related way.

This series focuses on armored conflict in detail. The rest of the WWII battlefield components are present, however, they are either abstracted a bit or streamlined to keep the armor as the lead element.

Great for its time, the newer miniatures version is streamlined and refined to a great modernized tactical WWII game.

Just bought the Yaquinto version, in fantastic condition for $29 on eBay. I actually owned one of the 'sister' games to this, as a kid - '88'. Based on my experience with 88, and my memory of the game play... what this game system does (tank battles) it does well. Very detail oriented game play, but not to the point that it really bogged down the game play. My brother and I always preferred the idea of owning 'Panzer', but never had the opportunity. All those heavy tanks! By comparison, '88' features much lighter and earlier tanks and vehicles. I can't wait to try playing Panzer with my brother.

GREAT system. Very much a miniatures game using cardboard. Terrain features could be placed on the map, cards for the tanks and troops, guns and weapons. Exciting!

Panzer was everything we wanted the expanded Squad Leader system to be but wasn't - armor-oriented, with detailed unit characteristics, quick-playing, and with a super-flexible terrain system. Virtually every aspect of tactical WWII combat is covered in 24 pages of easy-to-understand rules. Those frustrated with Squad Leader/ASL should take a hard look at Panzer, along with its sister games '88' and Armor.

I really like the original edition better than the GMT edition. Plotted movement, geomorphic boards, simultaneous movement, it gives you a real miniatures feel to the game. Sometimes a new version is not necessarily a better one.

Excalibre 2nd edition. I don't have any problems with the rulebook font or map size issues. As good as the Yaquinto version but not as aesthetically nice as the GMT version.

The rating reflects that although I loved this game in my late teens, early twenties, I did not purchase the new GMT version.
