Third Reich

Third Reich is an adaptation of the famous boardgame of World War II Grand Strategy. You may lead either the Axis or the Allies against a human or computer opponent. The new player is advised to first skim over the rules, then read them, then be prepared for several searches during the game. It will take several play sessions before a new player becomes completely familiar with the game.
The game is turn-based where one turn represents a period of three months. Each Game Turn contains two Player Turns. Player Turns are further sub-divided into Movement, Combat, Unit Construction, and Strategic Redeployment phases. There is a separate Year Start Sequence between each Winter and Spring Game Turn, during which Strategic-Warfare Resolution and Construction take place. The map is divided into three separate Fronts—Western, Eastern and Mediterranean—by thick red lines. At the beginning of a side's Player Turn, each of its Major Powers selects, separately for each of the three Fronts, an Offensive, Attrition or Pass Option.
Depending on the scenario being played, victory is determined by the number of red-printed Objectives a side controls at the end of play, or by the number of Allied Major Powers that fall to the Axis, or by the turn on which the last Axis Major Power falls to the Allies. A Major Power is conquered when the enemy has captured its Capital and still controls it at the end of the opposing side's next Combat Phase.

Review by Jerry Walz

This game has a few annoying flaws in its run-time, but its novelty mixed with complexity is unique. The other nice thing about this game is that you don't have to play it exactly the same way every time, other than attacking Poland. The West could be pretty much left alone while assaulting Russia, Spain, or Turkey. Some may complain that it can only be saved at certain points of time, but again, that is one of its benefits also. That makes the saves less likely to be abused for territory gain. Jerry Walz

  3/18/2015 3:31:00 AM - Jay Tough to get used to turn sequence. Plays like the board game but save often as there is no back button and it is easy to skip a step where you needed to do something.
  2/24/2015 3:37:00 AM - Mike This a playable (but buggish) game. Its best played with another person, I play with my brother via email, and its just like playing the board game! my two cents...
  1/27/2015 12:29:00 AM - Phelgan Not a touch on Advanced Third Reich board game, but not bad.
  1/3/2015 10:49:00 PM - Love the board game But, the computer game is nearly unplayable
  11/4/2013 3:46:00 AM - Keenan Good player
  9/14/2013 7:55:00 AM - GG very nice old board game i enjoi it
  7/10/2013 12:54:00 PM - Eddie baby I played this game for the first time in 1983, I think it was. I loved it. If the computer version is anything close, then it's worth a serious read. Not a game to try and rush through.
  3/7/2013 2:58:00 PM - I've played the boardgame this is based on with my dad a couple of times, it's quite different from this computer version, but both are fun.
What is abandonware ?
