Description

In December 1944 Hitler launched a massive offensive against the weakly held Ardennes forest section of the Allied front in Belgium. Achieving complete surprise, the Germans nevertheless faced tough resistance from the battle's opening days, and the offensive was virtually over 10 days after it began. There followed a bloody Allied counterattack, which gradually erased the bulge the Germans had created in the Allied line.

The Deadly Woods is a two-player, chit-driven, operational-level wargame covering the Battle of the Bulge from December 16th, 1944 to January 16th, 1945 when the Allies reunited their divided front by recapturing the key town of Houffalize. Each side is provided chits which are drawn that drive the action allowing movement and combat in a wide variety of combinations, while other chits provide for combat support (like artillery) and historical events (like traffic jams and German efforts at sowing confusion). Two scenarios are provided, a shorter 6-turn one just covering the German offensive portion and a longer 12-turn one that covers the entire operation.

Note: Players will need to supply one 6-sided die for play, it is not included with the game.

  • One 22" x 34” map
  • One 22" x 11" setup map
  • One and a half counter sheets
