Designer: Ken Dunn & Brian Youse
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German tactics failed inside the confines of Stalingrad as the Russians were able to dig in and fight from every building. The confines of the city stifled manoeuvre, and German superiority in artillery, air power, and armor were rendered ineffective as the infantry of both sides intermingled while fighting for each block of the city. This was Rattenkrieg – the war of the rats.

2018-12-04(A) Scott Fischbein vs Clark Traviglini German winClark's first game of ASLSK! Scenario was a good one as always - great intro to city fighting ASLSK style. Clark made some mistakes in his setup and took a few too many FPF shots with brittle conscripts, and ended up conceding in turn 3 when his reinforcements failed to show up and the Germans had control of all three victory buildings. Was fun to get back to the starter kits after getting started that way myself about a decade ago. If we had more time, I would have probably just jumped in and taught him the full game, but since we were trying to get a learning scenario finished on a week night, SK was the perfect way to go. We'll switch to full ASL in no time!
