Bakhmut Meatgrinder: Verdun 2023

A Note on Copyright

Bakhmut Meatgrinder: Verdun 2023 is COPYRIGHTED -- NOT Public Domain -- and FREE under the following conditions:


Bakhmut Meatgrinder: Verdun 2023 is dedicated to all those who have suffered and died in this terrible war and to my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna in the hope this will not escalate into a world war they and their families would suffer.

The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war.

War must be confined to history books and games and museums.

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are Bakhmut Meatgrinder: Verdun 2023's components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need more than one 6-sided dice or coins for the 50% probability resolutions.

More comments by myself and others about the game can be read on TalkConSimWorld and BoardGameGeek.
