Ardennes Petite (Ardennes Small): A Battle of the Bulge, Ardennes 1944, Minigame is dedicated ...
A. to the officers and men of the U.S. and British Armies and the U.S. Army Air Force, who fought and stopped Hitler's last desperate attempt to stave off the defeat and eliminaton of Nazism ... and himself.
B. with special remembrance of longtime family friend Chester A. Schultz (who won 2 Bronze Stars in the Battle of the Bulge), Ray Soleau (uncle of my old Alaska friend Paul DeSloover, who died in his P-51 Mustang fighter bomber on 25Jan45), and Ivan Bull (who was a sergeant in the 99th "Checkerboard" Infantry Division - also known as "The Diaper Division" and "The Battle Babies," because of its GIs' young age - which played a key role in holding the northern shoulder of the Bulge, preventing the SS panzer spearheads from breaking through to Spa and Liege).
C. to my children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna, in the hope that they may never have to go through a world war:

The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war.

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are Ardennes Petite's components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need a single six-sided die (or chits numbered 1-6, to be drawn out of a hat) for the randomized combat results tables.

More comments by myself and others about the game can be read on ConSimWorld and BoardGameGeek.
