I have put up a review of Leningrad by decision Games, on my blog.
This game has a small footprint, short rules and will play in a single sitting, making it ideal for many gamers with busy lives. The game uses the Panzergruppe Guderian system.20/02/2017 at 09:34 #58251RuarighParticipant
Thanks for the review. I’m on a bit of a Russian Front boardgame buzz at the moment and you make a good case for me to buy this game. Mind you, the counters look really ugly! We’ll have to see if that puts me off come pay day.20/02/2017 at 13:54 #58261Not Connard SageParticipant
I’ve still got a copy of the SPI release. It doesn’t take long to play, and there’s not a great many alternative strategies for either player.
PGG was seen as rather innovative back in the day, and the system was used in Cobra, Operation Typhoon, Patton: 3rd Army, and the Army Group South quad. Some of which I also still own.

In my to play queue, I also have the new edition of Defiant Russia by Avalanche Press (it is a Barbarossa to Moscow game) …… it might be worth you researching that, just to give you a second choice.20/02/2017 at 18:24 #58277RuarighParticipant
I’m not a huge fan of Avalanche Press, but I’ll add Defiant Russia to the list to check out. Have you ever played Eastfront from Columbia Games? I’m strangely attracted to it.
I’m still trying to work out how to play Streets of Stalingrad 3rd Edition in a reasonable time frame though! And I’m keen to get my regular opponent to play War Without Mercy and the rest of the Struggle for Europe series, while also trying to find time to finish the Red Barricades campaign I started two years ago. I do sometimes wonder if I should focus on smaller, more manageable games. 🙂
