Axis & Allies: Battle of The Bulge - Objective

Objective

A&A:Battle of the Bulge is played between two players: one commanding the Germans and the other the Allied forces. Unlike previous Axis & Allies games, where American and British forces are controlled by different players, the Allied player controls both American and British forces, due to the small numbers of British forces represented. American and British forces are identical in this game, and the different colors are used solely for historical accuracy.

Battle of the Bulge is played on a hexagonal grid, with the eastern parts of the board representing Germany and the large majority representing Belgium, although Antwerp, the Germans' eventual objective, is not represented on the map. The objective of Battle of the Bulge is for the Germans to acquire 24 Victory Points, or, in the Allies' case, to prevent Germany from acquiring 24 points at the end of eight turns of play. This objective was set at 24 points to reflect the Germans' actual progression in World War II, which would have been worth the equivalent of 23 points. Thus, Germany wins if the players' performance is better than Germans historically.

Famous quotes containing the word objective:

    So, my sweetheart back home writes to me and wants to know what this gal in Bombay’s got that she hasn’t got. So I just write back to her and says, “Nothin’, honey. Only she’s got it here.”
    Alvah Bessie, Ranald MacDougall, and Lester Cole. Raoul Walsh. Sergeant Tracey, Objective Burma, to a buddy (1945)

    Reason is a faculty far larger than mere objective force. When either the political or the scientific discourse announces itself as the voice of reason, it is playing God, and should be spanked and stood in the corner.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    In what does the objective measure of value lie? In the quantum of enhanced and organized power alone, in accordance with what occurs in all occurrence, a will to increase.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
