Axis & Allies Battle of the Bulge
Axis & Allies Battle of the Bulge (released in 2006) involves a major WWII German offensive that took place from December 16, 1944 to January 25, 1945. It was launched through the densely forested Ardennes region of Wallonia in Belgium, France and Luxembourg.
During this game, the Axis player has many opportunities to puncture through the Allied defenses to reach for the required 24 Victory Cities. The Allied player (United Kingdom and United States) will try to prevent the Axis from gaining ground.
Unlike most Axis & Allies games, Battle of the Bulge includes trucks that carry supplies, infantry and artillery to the ground units. Also, with no money involved in this game, game play flows quicker than many versions of Axis & Allies.
