Flying Pig: “The Battle of Kursk” on Kickstarter
Announcing the Platoon Commander Deluxe: Kursk Kickstarter campaign! On November 21st at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time (GMT +5) the bell will ring, and the Kickstarter will begin. As with ALL Flying Pig Game Kickstarters, the first pledgers will get a FREE game. So be there or be square (or be whatever geometric shape doesn’t get there first. We really don’t know.)
Platoon Commander Deluxe: Kursk (PCD:K) is the port of Tiny Battles’ well-known Platoon Commander system to Flying Pig’s big box, mounted map, large counter method of game publishing. Each game includes three mounted 22” x 17” geomorphic maps, and four sheets of thick (as in 2mm thick, wow these counters are so easy to pick up, thick, why haven’t wargames been like this forever, thick), 1” square counters. There are Tiger tanks, Panther tanks, Mk IV tanks, T-34/76 tanks, KV-1 tanks, SU-152 assault guns, infantry (rifle, guards, pioneers, submachine gun), mortar batteries, Stukas, IL-2, and more. The battles game out using an easy-to-learn, fast-playing system with a unique sequence of play.
The Kickstarter will include stretch goals for Kursk mousepads, an additional mounted map, additional counters, more scenarios, and additional action cards. Some of this stretch goal merchandise will only and ever be available to those that pledge for the Kickstarter.

Let’s Keep it Short
Hi Everyone,
I screwed up the Platoon Commander Deluxe: Kursk description in yesterday’s newsletter. There are TWO, mounted geomorphic maps that ship with the base game, not three. There will be a third map offered as a stretch goal, and in said stretch goal we will include scenarios and counters from not just July of 1943, but rather the entire Eastern Front war. In case you missed yesterday’s newsletter, there is more info on Kursk below.
