If you have already made the choice to become an Advanced Tobruk
'Desert Rat' (by purchasing Advanced Tobruk) then we think you
may just be the guy/gal with the desire to play the game, and
play it well. This applies to you SOLO guys and gals too.
The Tobruk GAMERS GUIDE is the publication for you. Perhaps
we should clarify. This publication is for you if you are interested
in a subtle combination of history and simulation—with the
detail and immediacy that only a tactical-level game can provide.
We feel confident you will read the Tobruk GAMERS GUIDE from
cover-to-cover the first time you crack it open and trust you
will appreciate tips on desert tactics from a former military
commander that commanded US forces in...the desert—and this
is NOT some piece we dusted off from a DPAM—it is direct
advice on the play of Tobruk.
Want to find your way around the Tobruk map better, the Tobruk
Terrain Walkabout article in the GUIDE will help. Before he passed
away, Hal Hock provided a parcel of his letters, representing
in-depth analyses and answers to critics of the 'Tobruk approach'—and
permission (urging, quite frankly, in the interest of setting
the record straight in the pre-internet days when Hal lacked his
own 'soap box') to publish as we see fit. They are loaded with
interesting commentary on all things TOBRUK, as well as simulation
design, research, etc. Fascinating reading.
More history, a new Sequence of Play, errata and clarifications
and MORE is provided for your Tobrukking pleasure. Limited quantities
printed so do not miss the Tobruk Gamers Guide. Rommel goggles
