Bastogne is a wargame covering the German siege of the town of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge, specifi cally the period 19-26 December when the town was surrounded.
You (the player) command US forces, while the game system controls the Germans.
The game is a race against time. You must hold out until relieved by Patton’s Third Army. If not, the Germans take the town and possibly gain a better outcome for the Battle of the Bulge.
Bastogne is a solitaire game, but can also be played by two or more players, each taking charge of different aspects of the US defense. For example, one player can be overall commander; others command various defensive sectors, and another take charge of air and artillery.
Bastogne Solo is based on Dien Bien Phu (Modern War #17), but there are some significant differences
