Update on the Mein Panzer Core Rules

 

Bob, myself and others have gone thru the entire rule book and made changes.  The updated book is available to purchase now both in digital and printed formats.  All who have previously purchased and registered either the Digital or printed copy of MPC can access and DL the new version.  This is now in the Private Access Library as Mein Panzer Core Rules Total Download 2.1b.

 

What's New:

    08/28/2022 MP Core 2.1b

    1. Cleaned up some formatting and spelling errors

    2. Updated some formatting

    3. Updates and clarifications made to various parts of the chapter rules.

    4. Added more play examples.

    5. Updated the Reference Cards

    6. Updated the Game Templates

    7. Updated the Mid Cold War and Late Cold War Chapters

 

This included 18+ months of writing, researching, and playtesting.  The playtesting part was mainly focused on Post WWII (i.e. Modern) items.   Items like Missiles (guidance, range, hit probabilities, attack profiles, etc.), variety of vehicle fire control systems, and the influence of 45 years of tech (up till the fall of Soviet Union 1990) on all parts of weapon systems and military tactics.  Post 1990 systems will come but I had to draw a line somewhere.

 

All this with the aim of moving forward with more Post WWII data books.  To this end the old Chapters 58 Cold War and Chapter 64 Ultra-Modern were renamed Chapter 58 Mid Cold War and Chapter 64 Late Cold War.  Weapon platforms in these chapters were all updated with more solid stats and play tested.

 

While Troop Quality (How well trained are your grunts?) will always be the first consideration in MPC play, items like evolution of Fire Control systems, Ammo Quality, Armor Protection, and tactics used in battle all are important aspects of the game.

 

Speaking of "game".  That is what MPC is, a game.  A simulation of warfare on a table top.  Playability is the number one item when ODGW writes the games we sell.  Realism and other aspects are important and hold a high spot in the hierarchy.  However, if something doesn’t play well in the game then no one will use it.  In Post WWII tech there are many, many options to use in your game.

Just a note for everyone...

I have updated and posted (both for the individual card and the complete rule book download)the Advanced Reference Card formatting to match the formatting updates that were made to the rules. I should have done this earlier, but, to be honest, I just noticed it now while updating the 10-15mm cards and the Easy-Vis Cards. I also updated and posted the 10-15mm Advanced Reference Card, the Easy-Vis Advanced Reference Card and the 10mm-15mm Easy-Vis Advanced Reference Card.

 

Download and Enjoy!

I have completed the last of the File Updates/Uploads to the Private Access Library for MP Core 2.1b. I have updated all of the scale template files and the Printing Instructions File. There are now only 3 Scale Templates files to download as I have consolidated all of the templates.

  • 6mm Templates (comes in the full download and print version)
  • 10-12mm Templates
  • 15mm Templates

I also have updated and uploaded the Markers file to match the 2.1b Version of the rules. I have also added 3 other Markers files that contain additional Overwatch, Activated and Pin Markers for those large games (Additional Markers #1 and #2) and Building Markers (Cellar, Roof, 1st Floor, etc.) Weapons Markers (Rifle, SAW, Molotov Cocktail, Satchel Charge, etc.), Rubble (for those destroyed Buildings) and Fire Lane Markers.

 

Finally, I updated and uploaded the Advanced Playsheets file. 

 

All of these files are located in:

 

Old Dominion GameWorks → Downloads → Private Access Library→ Mein Panzer→ Core Rules→ Component

 

Have fun and enjoy!
