Rommel is a game able to re-create great battles for European and Mediterranean theatres of the Ww2. The players can command a division or a corp. It is not necessary to have a ruler, the table is divided into squares in which different units can be deployed. For this game Ezio (who organized the play test and prepared the table) used simple pins.
... and a detail of the squares (15 cm x 15 cm)
There are no specific rules for miniature bases. Ezio modified some photos to explain better the solutions we adopted.
My clus mates decided to play an introductive scenario that it is possible to download free from Sam Mustafa's web site: operation Brevity
Brevity was a limited offensive conducted by British troops in mid-May 1941 to attack the weak Axis forces in the Sollum-Bardia area.
It was our first club match. The rule system is simple and easy to play. You have to manage your army/division/corp/company using a pool of dices able to reproduce events and troop movements for offensive and/or defensive tactics.
