Wargamer’s Guide to The Battle of the Bulge

The second booklet in Guidon Game’s Wargamer’s Guidebook Series came out around April 1972, and reprinted articles from The Avalon Hill General, International Wargamer, and Panzerfaust collected by Don Greenwood.

These are all about the original 1965 Avalon Hill release of the game, though there is also a review of Guidon Games’ variant Operation Greif.

By the reconstructed schedule, this was the August-September 1974 issue. The big news this time was the sale of Lowrys Hobbies (the original mail-order store) to Pete Rice, under the name “The Toy Soldier”.
