So we have:

A wargame that starts with the letter 'B' and does not have the word 'Battle' in its title.
It is not published by MMP.
It was not published in the last 2 years.
It uses chits.
It has dice-rolling.
It's based on a specific battle in the Western Front of WW2.
Doug has it in his collection, but hasn't played it in the last year.

Crap guys, I'm not the wargamer here; someone better nail this soon!

Is it based on the battle of the bulge?

Was it published by Avalon Hill?

Is it Breakout: Normandy? (Although I think you said it wasn't about a specific battle...)


Edit: ah second look, it IS based upon a specific battle.

Jeff wins. Apologies if I threw anyone with the "on/during WWII" - wasn't sure how to answer that.

I think you answered that fairly well. The game sounds pretty good. Any chance of organising a game at EGF or Dockers? I can't get to Dockers until late though.
