Panzer General: Allied Assault is the name of both a digital and board/card game developed by Petroglyph Games. The Xbox Live Arcade version was released on October 21, 2009 and the board game on January 5, 2010.
Allied Assault is set in the closing months of World War II and has players play as Nazi Germany or the United States. Allied Assault is a turn-based game, where each turn is divided into three phases: Drawing cards, Operations, and Combat. At the beginning of his turn, the player draws 4 cards from his unit deck and/or the operations deck (in the XBLA version, this is done automatically). The player can then spend prestige to deploy new units onto tiles controlled by them, move active units, play special operation cards, or engage enemy units on the board.
In combat, the attacking unit attacks first unless the defender is dug in. Players first compare their unit's combat stats and may then play operation cards to sway the battle in their favor or cancel c
