Panzer Lehr vs. Panzer Lehr 2
#1
All,

    Hopefully just a simple question to answer.  Is there any difference between Panzer Lehr an Panzer Lehr 2 other than number of counters?  I did a quick look at the scenarios.  In both editions there are the same number of scenarios, with the same names, and in the same order.  I have a copy of Panzer Lehr 2 and imagine that this means I have both games (copies of supplements) all rolled up into one.

So - I notice that only 2% of the population own Panzer Lehr 2 - its # 99 out of 99 - Dead Last - And No None has Medaled / AAR'ed / Played / Or even Rated It.

If I own Panzer Lehr 1 - is it worth my time and cash to buy Panzer Lehr 2?

Exactly what is included in the extra 74 counters? 102 vs 176.

Are we to believe that all 74 bonus counters are Leaders?

Thanks!

There are a lot more vehicles. Armor and 1/2tracks. A couple goliaths for the 316. Funklenk-Panzerkompanie. And there are the afore mentioned 24 leader counters..

IIRC Daniel and/or Matt were playing through PL a few years ago.

I've not purchased it because, as I understand, a great many scenarios were designed with hidden units and thus somewhat problematic for solo play (not impossible, of course).  I concede the lure of the counters is strong in this one, but I've so many yet-to-be-played scenarios that ...

Yes, Matt and I played a baker's dozen scenarios before calling it quits.

If I recall correctly, all scenarios have a number of hidden units and they play a large role, much larger than the hidden units in the Liberation '44 scenarios in my experience. Matt played a few more scenarios solitaire this past year and he enjoyed them. You may want to read some of his AAR's to see how he plays them.

The hidden units are what has kept me away from it. Maybe I'll find a local opponent.
