BLITZKRIEG! (PSC Games, 1-2 players, ages 14 and up, 20 minutes; $49.99)
The sub-heading on the Blitzkrieg! box is “World War Two in 20 Minutes” and it pretty much does just that. It’s a tight tactical tussle across the major theatres of the war. Players deploy their troops – by sea, land and air – to swing a theatre’s balance in their favour and win a campaign. Each campaign is worth points: first to 25 wins the war. Who knew WW2 was won on points? One thing to note: the Axis player starts, so if they’re first to 25 the Allies get one more turn to try to beat them.
