Description

Operation Skorpion is a two-player game depicting Rommel’s attempt to stabilize the Sollum Front in mid-May 1941 and regain control of the important Halfaya Pass, the gateway to Egypt.The British forces had consolidated their hold on the pass and were harassing the Germans to the south. Players will note a distinct disparity in combat forces between the two sides. At the time, the Germans held the British Matilda Mk.IIA infantry tank in high regard due to its heavy defensive armor. For this reason, the Germans committed much of their armor striking force to this operation, which they referred to as "Unternehmen Skorpion." In this battle, the Germans were in a race for time to quickly strike and capture the pass before their limited supplies ran out. Each player will have to judiciously allocate his resources and play a cat and mouse game in an attempt to outfox his opponent using the game’s unique fog of war combat system.
