    There are 3 games that use the old Steel Panthers rules ( there were 3 different Versions).

    One is Steel Panthers: World at War. It is basicly a WW2 game, it can span from 1930 to 1949. It is turn based , each unit represents 1 vehicle, 1 Major weapon type ( Like a Howitzer) and squads of varing size depending on Nationality.

    Another is Steel Panthers World War 2. It covers a lot of the same time frame with a different version of the base combat rules.

    The third is Steel Panthers: Main Battle Tank. It covers from 1946 to 2020.

    Each is a Tactical game, with the ability to have up to a Rump Division in the largest battles. Though it is billed as a Battalion level game.

    All 3 can be gotten for free and have been updated to windows versions. They are OK Solo and can be played by e-mail as well.

    I was wondering if anyone plays them or other war games.

    I have about 12 Matrix releases of newer games. Ranging from ancient to modern. Matrix Game Company is a publisher, they make deals with game designers and then advertise and sell their games. The current hot titles are Civil War and WW2.

    Address is www.matrixgames.com They have a large board for discussing all the games they sell..

    I LOVE Steel Panthers. I have the original WW2 version and Steel Panthers II.

    And its goof to know that the updated versions will run on Windows, because once I moved to Win98 I could nto longer play. Booo!

    I'll have to see if I can D/L them. Thanks for the info!!
