A Postcard Mortain egy nagyon könnyen tanulható társasjáték, 1 - 2 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövid, csak 20 - 30 perc. A társast, a könnyebb tanulhatósága ellenére, csak 10 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni.

An operational level game in postcard size/format, of the August 7-13 1944 German counter-offensive trying to break through Mortain and neighboring towns (down in "Normandy's Switzerland") to get westward to Avranches on the sea to cut off supplies and units to Patton's 3rd Army pouring through it into Brittany and the rest of France.
6 divisions on each side, plus the heroic 2nd Battalion, 120th Infantry Regiment, 30th (Old Hickory, National Guard) Division which successfully held out surrounded atop Hill 317 above Mortain for 6 days. 7 one-day turns, as historically.
50% strategic possibility of treacherously patriotic anti-Hitler conspirator General der Panzertruppen Gerhard Graf von Schwerin as historically - and he survived the SS and the war! - holding back 116.PzDiv for the crucial first 2 days, in which case victory for the German player is instead just cutting 1st Army's nearer north-south route to get units down and around to the east to form the southern flank of the Falaise Pocket which decimated the German Army in the West, historically.
Factor differential plus press-your-luck Pressed Attack and/or Desperate Defense - Special Factor - combat mechanics which make it excellent for solitaire play.
U.S. infantry division Deployment doubling their strengths for both artillery-supported defense *and attack*.
Allied RAF 84 Group Typhoons and 303rd Wing P-47 Thunderbolts to aerially torment the Germans.
Subtle Disruption Recovery phase variation to simulate veteran German units' operational resilience.
FIENDISH little game.
