JagdPanther Magazine #11


Take a journey with us back to October 1975, when a small wargame club in Amarillo Texas (led by Steve Cole) produced an award-winning magazine filled with articles, variants, and reviews. The "Iron Age" of JagdPanther continued with color cardstock covers, one-piece multi-color maps, and die-cut counters.

The editorial said that the staff now felt a sense of accomplishment (rather than relief) as each issue was finished, and that we now had a product we were proud to show non-wargaming friends. We had even reached the point that much bigger game companies were buying advertising in our pages (Battleline bought the back cover).

The big game in this issue was THE MARCH ON INDIA by Thomas J. Fowler. This was a little known Japanese Imphal-Kohima offensive in 1944 that caught the British off guard and could have penetrated into India itself. The problem was the remote terrain and poor road network, which made actually moving any significant number of troops difficult. (The game reflects a period of wargaming history where companies tried to find a battle that had never been done as a game, rather than doing the 15th Gettysburg game.)
Variant articles in the issue included a 1948 variant for WORLD WAR 3, placing all of the Grant tanks in one brigade for THE FALL OF TOBRUK, anarchists in our own SPANISH CIVIL WAR game, better political rules for OIL WAR, a historically realistic variant for WORLD WAR I (plus more variants covering naval, Iberian, and air operations), historical alternative for SCHUTZTRUPPE reflecting that a German battlecruiser (rather than a light cruiser) might have been trapped in Tanganyika, naval units for BLITZKRIEG, a four-player variant for TRIPLANETARY, poison gas in OVERLORD, reorganized US Army units for our own MARINE game, a large number of new units for MODERN BATTLES, alternate victory conditions and combat table for GETTYSBURG, counter-battery fire in PANZERBLITZ, a new aerial maneuver for RICHTHOFFEN'S WAR, improved rules for the dinosaur game GAR-GAROUK, tinkering with the rules for DREADNOUGHT, updates for SINAI reflecting the 1975 peace treaty, a variant for D-DAY in which NATO must retake France from the Soviets who conquered it, and minor rules improvements for ZEPPELIN.
New scenarios were presented for PANZERBLITZ (a balanced tank battle), THIRD REICH, NAPOLEON AT WATERLOO (French and Prussian units that historically did not arrive), TANK (a breakthrough battle), and SSN (a simpler introductory scenario).
Articles included better ways for using stock market numbers to roll die in play by mail games, an analysis of KASSERINE PASS, how to conduct playtesting effectively, better ways to cut off the south end options in ANZIO, a grid system to allow ships in any naval game to move in eight directions (not just six), an improved naval search system for any naval game, and corrections to the order of battle in WILDERNESS CAMPAIGN.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
