A fan of the old Avalon Hill/SPI WW2 strategy war games? Like to think about your next move rather than having quick reaction times? Battle Series Eastern Front - Kursk - Battle at Prochorovka is the game for you.

Battle Series Eastern Front - Kursk - Battle at Prochorovka, covers one of the largest single tank battle in the history of warfare. Approximately 1400 tanks and assault guns met head to head near the town of Prochorovka, in a battle that became a desperate close range shoot-out which would decide the ultimate success or failure of Operation Zitadelle.

The 2nd SS Panzer Korps began it's attack on July 3rd, and spent the next 8 days breaking through the dense Russian defensive positions. During the late afternoon and evening of the 11th, they broke through and repulsed a counterattack by the Russian 31st Tank Corps. Reorganizing during the night, the panzers struck northward before dawn on the 12th. As dawn broke, the lead German elements ran head-on into the lead elements of the Soviet 5th Guards Tank Army and the battle was on. It was to last all day, in confused and savage fighting at close ranges.

This game recreates that day with the player being able to play both as the Russians and Germans. Go to yobowargames.com for the latest updates as the game develops

I enjoyed the Moscow one, this one looks like a step further with more units. I also liked the idea of playing both sides. However in my currency $12 for a 1 map game seems a little steep.   I wouldn't mind paying a more (like $15-18 usd) for a version that perhaps has a map editor where we can make our own scenarios to play (using exiting tiles and maybe being able to create larger maps too) and also an export option so others can play too (increasing number of maps), as well as creating challenge scenarios where the player has to win in 10 moves etc. I believe the dev is working on another game so likely these ideas might not see the light of day for some time.

This doesn't come with a Steam key??? How unfortunate.

Good work, very clean interface and high quality on graphic details.
