And those crazy Germans launched a last ditch counteroffensive, known to some as the Battle of the Bulge. Although at the time, the Allies called it the Ardennes Counteroffensive. It was the press who coined "Battle of the Bulge" to describe the way the Allied front line bulged inward on wartime news maps.
Today being the first day of that famous counteroffensive, we at Tiny Battle wanted to remind you that we offer WINTER THUNDER an operational-level game simulating this famous battle, designed by famous designer Brian Train. It utilizes Brian's "nearly diceless" double-blind mission matrix system, a unique system that sets the game apart from the rest of the pack.

The assault began in early morning against the weakest section of the Allied line, an 80-mile poorly protected stretch of forest, because the Germans would never think to go through those woods. Ever.
