BoB is a "Good" movie, but totally inaccurate. Still I enjoy watching it..

BoB also stood for "Blood on the Badge", anybody remember the sit-com and the character who wrote it?

Band of Brothers is excellent and historic. In my foolishness, I thought that BoB was Battle of the Bulge.. Rolling Eyes

Ah, I see.

If you mean the Battle of the Bulge with the "Panzer Song", yes, that one is famous for being the most inaccurate war game ever. It is so wrong it actually gets funny.

There is an older, black and white one though, that is pretty good. If anyone has its title I would be gratefull. It is in the style of "The Longest Day" or "A Bridge to Far".

That would probably be "Battleground". It followed a Platoon of the 101 into the battle for Bastogne. Very good movie.

With the Battle of the Bulge, the Panzer song was the best part..

Were you thinking of "Battleground" with Van Johnson?

I'm a movie trivia guy, but a black and white movie of the Battle of the Bulge doesn't come to mind except "Battleground" which is much older than "The Longest Day".

I'm interested in finding out.

ps - thats funny, Teale put his post up 1 minute before I did.

Van Johnson, Ricardo Montalban, James Whitmore, James Arness and a host of other young actors just starting. Also included were some of the original members of the 101st. I love "Old" movies Very Happy

Thanks guy, I knew I would get an answer to that here Smile. Now to find it somewhere on CD...


On Battele of the Bulge: the Panzer Song is very funny, but the end is as well, when the tanks fight it out. The landscape is pure American (some training base? ) and definite nothing like the Ardennes at all. Dusty rocky and desert scrubb instead of wet green and pines. And the tanks are all post war American ones, racing around... Hollywood at its best.

Does anyone know what the next "blind" tournament scenario will be ? (like the Rommel one was done) ... Sicily, Kursk, ???

And thinking ahead: Is there a scenrio in the works for the Inaugural BiN Blind Tournament event ?

These tournaments using unissued scenarios are IMHO great. I enjoy the tourneys with the old scenarios too but these unplayed ones even the playing field somewhat. Of course the good players still tend to whip up on us subpar players irregardless. hehe

Any new scenario that we (or SSG) release has the potential to be a blind or "First Release" Tournament.

We have the following as a potential:

- Any of the BIN scenarios, I have already indicated that I would be happy to run a BIN Tournament as soon as it is released.. we would not allow you to register until you have purchased it and the Tournament would commence as soon as we have (say) 32 players. So the first 32 players to buy the game and register would be in the Tournament.

- Sicily (which I am working on) has the potential to be one also.. I just need to finish balancing it..

- Kursk which Manny is working on also could be one..

- Patton - Master of Battle; I know that JSS is working on the second in the Master of Battle series.. and I expect he will want to run this one as a First Release Tournament also.
