PANZERSCHRECK #19 (Summer 2021) is a wargames magazine that contains two solitaire, complete games in this 100-page full-color issue, in addition to game reviews, interviews, variants, and general articles.  U-BOAT CAPTAIN (tactical/operational WW2), and BATTLE CAJAMAECA, 1532 (tactical early modern).  Both stress high playability along with solid historicity.


U-BOAT CAPTAIN is a operational-tactical game covering individual German WW2 U-Boat combat. Comes with full rules (19 pages), 6"x 9" map, several U-Boat Displays, 27 counters, with optional rules, several scenarios and campaign games (of various lengths), extensive examples of play, and Designer's Notes.   The game has the feel of a miniatures rule set, but with baordgame format.  Captain various historical German U-Boats (Type VIIB, VIIC, IXA, IXC) on North Atlantic patrols from 1939 through 1942 and try and achieve the most tonnage sunk you can, without being sunk yourself.  Sail to your area of operation... conduct daily patrols/searches...if you have an encounter, decide when/if to attack (watch out for escorts)... if you attack, perform the attack sequence and launch torpedoes, or use your deck gun.  Can you be a successful U-Boat Captain?

BATTLE OF CAJAMARCA, 1532 is a solitaire game depicting the climactic “battle” between Pizarro’s conquistadors (the player) and the cream of the Incan empire (the game system). In spite of being outnumbered 40 to 1, the Spaniards are the heavy favorite to win. But victory is not a foregone conclusion, and you’ll need to employ good strategy to emulate the historical result. Comes with 10 pages of rules, 6" x 9" map, 80 counters. 

WARGAME CONTENT. In addition to the games, this issue has over a dozen game reviews (Robert G. Smith, Game Review Editor), plus several articles and variants, a game design contest, and the usual depatments.  For gamers who own Minden's PANZERSCHIFF game, an Extra Ships variant is included which contains 22 new ships for the game system.  (See Table of Contents, below, for details of what's included and reviewed in this issue.)

PANZERSCHRECK #19 provides wargaming content and games in Minden fashion with designs that are not only authentic but highly playable.   All game components and rules are provided in the pages of the magazine.  PANZERSCHRECK aims to capture the spirit of the golden age of wargaming, providing you with old-fashioned wargame fun.  We're very pleased with this edition and are confident that you will be as well. Editor & Game Designer:  Gary Graber.

Would love to read a review, or opinions on U-Boat Captain.

Anyone purchased this and willing to share your thoughts on the rules, and game components?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
