So what's NEW in the new TOBRUK ? Plenty! The map presentation is entirely new. Instead of being 'locked' into a small map area, you'll now receive two 22" x 34" geomorphic mapsheets that can be connected on any side.
The terrain presentation includes sand and scrub on each mapsheet. Card stock overlays are provided for hills, wadis, deirs and sand dunes to allow for the customization of the map required in many scenarios. And a random overlay generator is also part of the kit, to enhance replay value between play sessions.
The counters have the overhead view of AFVs and vehicles debuted in wargaming with TOBRUK. Vehicles and guns now come on a 3/4" counter, infantry on a 5/8" and markers remain on a 1/2" square. New, four color art is provided to keep things bright, and information for the use of the units depicted on the counters is provided...on the counters...to replace tedious table look-ups during play.
Speaking of counters, a wide array of units not found in the original TOBRUK are provided in the new edition. including various armored cars and more new units are provided to allow you to game myriad situations from 1940-1943.
A new card-based scenario presentation combines the historical synopsis with the orders of battle, map requirements and any special rules. All the information needed for play is found on one card to make setting up and keeping track of the action faster and easier.
