1 Player, 45 – 60 Minutes playing time, Ages 13 and up. Castle Itter is a light wargame focusing on one of the oddest battles of WWII where the Germans allied with the Americans to defeat the SS. This game scores in the high 7’s on Board Game Geek. We have heard from many who never play wargames due to the perceived difficulty that this one really resonates. Can you US GI’s, with their Wehrmacht allies (!) hold off the dreaded SS? Manufacturer: Dan Verssen Games (DVG). Categories: Dice, Wargame, and World War II. Game Mechanics: Action Points, Dice Rolling, and Solo / Solitaire Game

Description

The Battle for Castle Itter was fought near the Austrian village of Itter on 5 May 1945, in the last days of the War in Europe during World War II. US soldiers joined forces with Wehrmacht infantrymen, an SS officer, an Austrian resistance fighter, and recently freed French prisoners of war to defend an Austrian castle against an attacking force from the 17th SS Panzergrenadier Division.

During a game of Castle Itter, you take the role of the force that defended the castle from 0400 – 1600 on 5 May 1945. The goal of the game is to last until the SS deck is depleted, without allowing SS Counters to reach the castle. You score points for each Defender that survives the assault and lose points for each SS Counter remaining on the board at the end of the game – the higher your score, the better.

      Great preemtive review 😉 As far as Pavolov’s House, it’s going to be here at Stone Valley Games in about three weeks according to the developer. Exciting! –Eric

    Fun game that is relatively quick and easy to learn. Although it is only one scenario there is enough variability to keep playing sessions interesting.

    Wonderful game! Full of tense moments that hinge on a single die roll being made. Lots of fun.

    Outstanding light tactical wargame. By “light” I mean the mechanics and game play are easy to grasp and execute. The rulebook is easy and quick to read. But this game is very challenging (maybe even hard) to win. It has the same core mechanics as its brother Pavlov’s House, but this plays differently because the movement, grouping, and coordination of your forces requires much more finesse and agility.

    Amazing tower defense style game set in a real historical setting. If you’re into war games or even tower defense games along with history then this is the game for you.
