Panzer Grenadier:
Blue Danube

The First Great War ended in December 1916 with Wilson’s Peace, a negotiated settlement that left all parties vaguely dissatisfied (except those no longer called on to die by the millions). The Second Great War erupted in August 1940, with Serbian, Russian, French and Italian armies attacking the Central Powers in a naked grab for territory and power.

Armies and fleets were not the only forces the aggressors deployed. Along the broad Danube River, the Austrian flotilla fought to keep their Serbian enemies from pushing upstream into the heart of the Monarchy. The armored riverine warships, known as monitors, featured heavy guns and thick armor, in effect small battleships maximized for the river environment. But Serbia had built its own fleet of river vessels, as had their ally, Romania.

River Battleships: Blue Danube is an expansion set for Panzer Grenadier: River Battleships. It comes with are 84 new playing pieces: 20 “long” river monitors, 16 “short” river gunboats and minelayers, and 48 standard-sized ones for troops and leaders. Plus, you get a set of 10 scenarios so you can play with them.

River Battleships: Blue Danube is an expansion set; it’s not a complete game. It’s a download; you’ll have to assemble the pieces yourself. The rules and maps and markers come from River Battleships.

Note: This product is a digital download. Pieces require assembly.
