Panzer Expansion #3: Drive to the Rhine – The 2nd Front by GMT Games

P500 Orders to date: 394 Status: Not there yet

Boasting 528 counters and four double sided maps, Panzer Expansion #3 should be on every tank enthusiasts list. Expanding on the highly popular game, Panzer, this expansion includes all of the most notable German and American forces that saw action on the Western front. As the title of the series would imply the game is focused on the many armored units that roamed the fields of Western Europe. Combining this expansion with the previous games in the series you can tailor your own custom scenarios. If you feel the need to unleash your inner tank commander, drive over to GMT’s website and have a look.



Golan ’73: FAB #3 by GMT Games

P500 Orders to date: 308 Status: Not there yet

Coming in at number three in the Fast Action Battles (FAB) series designed by Rick Young, Golan ’73 takes players back to October 6, 1973 and the Yom Kippur War. Wage a pitched battle between the mechanized forces of Syria and Israel over the strategically important ground of the Golan Heights. Golan ’73 continues the FAB series tradition of presenting a game focused on speed and playability. It also promises to provide low unit density while maintaining historical accuracy and exiting play. The game includes a number of operational assets for both sides to employ while fighting across the beautifully drawn map using the FAB series standard wooden blocks. Think you have what it takes to battle for the Golan Heights? If so then preorder your copy today.

heroesHeroes & Generals by Reto-Moto

Greenlite by the community on STEAM

STEAM’s recently created Greenlight program has finally landed on GARPA. Greenlight allows the community to vote on which games they want to see released and supported by STEAM. A recent success story is the self-described action, strategy game, Heroes & Generals. Billed as free to play massive online FPS game with a semi-persistent strategic campaign, the game has been Greenlited and is currently in closed beta. Not only does the game promise great FPS action as well as a strategic campaign that ties it all together, but it also has plans to build across the multiple platforms. The FPS action will be taking place on the PC while the strategic game can be access via iOS/Android apps. Oh, and lest we forget in keeping with the holiday spirit, there does promise to be tanks to drive. Sound like fun? Head over to their website and sign up for the beta today.


From the guys here in the GARPA labs we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We’ll be back in two weeks with our regularly scheduled program. For now it’s off to stuff ourselves silly with turkey
