Panzer (AH)

Under the Panzer series of games from Avalon Hill are Panzerblitz, Panzer Leader, and The Arab-Israeli Wars. Also included is the Panzerblitz game from MMP. All are individual games but fall under the same umbrella as far as design and concepts.

The WWII Russian Front game in the distinctive black and orange box was introduced to the retail market in 1970 by The Avalon Hill Game Company (TAHGC). Originally designed as Tactical Game 3, and distributed in Issue #22 of Strategy & Tactics Magazine (1969), Panzer Blitz took the gaming community by storm. TAHGC, soon after S&T 22, acquired the rights to Tactical Game 3. They knew they had a winner on their hands, and pumped the supply chain full of copies. It is estimated that over 300,000 copies of Panzer Blitz were sold over the print life of the game, making it the most widely owned simulation board game in history. Panzer Blitz also inspired the creation of two other games: Panzer Leader, which covered Western Front action in the last year of World War II; and The Arab-Israeli Wars, which dealt with the more recent Middle East conflicts.
