Description
Game Description:
An easy and fun historical game of Rommel’s battles with the English in North Africa during WW2. One of the early Avalon Hill beginner war games.
Ranked a 2 on Avalon Hill's complexity scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high). Playing time 2 to 4 hours.

Ever since men began making weapons they have used them to create legends. In early 1941, when his conquest of Europe was embarrassed by the rout of his Italian allies in Africa, Hitler dispatched General Erwin Rommel to forestall a seemingly inevitable Axis defeat. Reorganizing the forces under his command as the Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK), Rommel immediately launched the first of his legendary desert offensives.

Now, the legend of "The Desert Fox" is recreated. From April 1941 through the climatic battle at El Alamein in later 1942. Afrika Korps simulates the mobile conflict between Rommel's Panzerarmee Afrika and the British Eighth Army defending Egypt and the Suez Canal. During each monthly game-turn, the initiative may switch from the Germany to the Allied player as both come to understand why Rommel called North Africa "A tactician's paradise; a logistical officer's nightmare."

Mod Contents:
Updated high-res map and counters;

No, can't really do PBEM on TTS Hans. The host has to save the game and restart it. Can't really send that save to anyone as far as I know. TTS is mostly for solo and hosting real people in real time. Now that said, someone may have figured out where the save game file is and ow to send it to the other player but its not the way TTS was designed.

Of course...thank you. So tell me, as a TTS noobster...can I PBEM? I see the multiplayer function to host or join a server but what about turn based PBEM. Just save your turn and send?...that simple

Thanks for this; a great addition to your collection. I used to play this and 'Russian Campaign' a hell of a lot in my teens. :steamhappy:
