Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Defense of Stalingradís central district and the all important main ferry landing lay largely in the hands of hastily mobilized militia composed of factory workers and the NKVD garrison. These troops would have to hold the Wehrmacht at bay until the 13th Guards Division could cross the Volga into the city. But as the German 76th Infantry Division entered the ruins of downtown Stalingrad on a two-mile front, they met the enemy in a new environment more suitable to his talents. Nevertheless, as Captain Gerhard Meunch personally led his 3rd Battalion in the assault, he had every expectation of reaching the Volga that day. . .

2019-07-05(A) David Garvin vs Will Thatcher German win
2019-06-01(A) David Garvin vs John Stadick German winGame was called at end of German turn 5: Southern building was entirely in German hands and was just breaking into the northern one. The top level of the southern building had over 20 FP of German MGs in there and I was freely running German squads off of the east edge.
2015-12-18(A) Andy Beaton vs Will Willow German winRussian resistance lasted until the last German CC, after which German exiting units cut short Russian reinforcements and prevented a last turn counterattack. Use the Stugs as battering rams to get into fortified buildings - firepower against fortified fanatic locations in the twilight is tough.
2011-09-01(D) Fred Ingram vs Jeff Coleman German winA nicely designed scenario. The dusk and reinforcements occurring at just the right points in the flow of the game. My 1st mistake was setting up the conscripts a little too far forward. We both had just tripped to the rule about the extra +1 movement in gutted buildings and it had not dawned on me the difficulty I would have getting them back unmolested to the victory buildings. The NKVD strong points are awesome. The NKVD squads are almost a guaranteed rally. Turn 5 was a disaster and the whole tempo of the game changed from tough defenders to units hanging on for dear life. My reinforcements were meager, I had only received one leader and hardly any support weapons over 3 turns. The Russians finally conceded after the 1st half of turn 9 (The Germans only needed to get one ground level location of the norhtern victory building. As always, Jeff was a great opponent. Would play this one as either side in a heartbeat.
