Critical Hit (1st Edition, 1999; 2nd Edition, 2020)
Country of Origin:
1st Edition: 8 scenarios on cardstock
2nd Edition: 8 scenarios on cardstockCommentary:
The Euro-Pack series of scenario packs began as reprints of scenarios from the European ASL News magazine, collected into a common theme (like the Battle of the Bulge).
The scenario mix is weighted towards “early” East Front action, with only 2 scenarios set after 1941. Actions include Finland 1941 (Soviets vs. Germans/Finns); Soviet Union 1941 (Soviets vs. Germans , Soviets vs. Romanians), 1942 (Soviets vs. Germans), 1943 (Soviets vs. Germans).
EP91 (A Taste of Things to Come) is a DASL scenario.
The pack is not a particularly remarkable product.
2nd Edition (Euro 5: Lords of the Steppe) Comments: Some 20 years after Critical Hit first released Euro-Pack V, it dusted the scenarios off and reprinted them as Euro 5: Lords of the Steppe. The Lords of the Steppe are like the Lords of the Dance, only flatter. Desperation Morale has not seen this version, but it is likely some of the scenarios are tweaked from their originals.
