There were two others I owned and played a few times that IDK if they are still tucked away someplace or if they were tossed out and that was Avalon Hills 1914 and Anzio. I suspect they did not survive because they were not bookcase games and finding a place to store them was a PITA. Once I got a computer these became relics and started gathering dust. Before I discovered Steel Panthers then embarked on this 2-decade journey the ones I played to death were the V for Victory series developed by Atomic Games in 1991 and distributed by Three-Sixty Pacific. Hard to believe that was nearly 30 years ago........

Yeah, my first PC game was "War in Russia" by Grigsby on an Atari 800, loaded via a cassette tape, took the better part of half an hour as I recall.

In many ways this game is no different. Remembering every keyboard short-cut you might need is difficult if you are not playing regularly. Even I have to look one up now and again.......

Haven't been around in quite a while but I'm glad to see this community still active and both games being played. If I can locate and get my CD copies installed and upgraded on my new laptop, I'm going to start trying to play them regularly again. Heck, who knows, if I can get caught up on all the changes I might even take a stab at designing campaigns again.

one Canadian here. More of a lurker than a poster. Many years of gaming. Started with Blitzkrieg. Had a major love affair with Avalon Hill! And the SPI monster games. Set up for those was a pain, as was finding a place to set up and leave. I've played SP since it was created. WinSPWW2 and WinSPMBT are the only PC games that have followed me. I'm not as steady a player as I once was, but they are still there waiting for me! Many, many thanks to Don and Andy for maintaining these wonderful games.

Long time gamer here from Ann Arbor/Saline, Michigan. I hail from two cities! One where I grew-up, the other where I live (that's how old Steel Panthers is). Actually three (York township) if you count the fact that I have to travel to my folks to get online.
