Your goal in Eleminis is to collect one of each of these five Eleminis in your row on the table. Players each have five slots avai...lable to them, and each slot can hold one card. On a turn, you draw a card from the deck then either play it in a row (if it's a character card) or use it (if it's an action). Each element outranks two other elements. You can play an element card you draw in any empty space or replace a weaker element with the new one; you can play in your row or an opponent's. A star element is wild and can represent any element you need; a trash card can replace any element and can be displaced only by a star or an action card. The actions let you discard cards in play, move cards, swap them, and recycle (discard a card and draw a new card). Play continues until someone collects one element of each type in his row. read more

The Sturmtiger assault howitzers of Sturmm rserkompanie 1000 and 1001 were attached to 6. SS-Panzer Armee to take part in Wacht am... Rhein (Watch on the Rhine, the Ardennes offensive) in mid-January 1944. However, it wasnâ t until late-January that they joined the battle where they were engaged in fighting on the Eifel front around Duren and Euskirchen. They were earmarked to lay waste to Liege once the offensive had broken through the American line. Circumstances dictated, however, that most Sturmtiger engagements ended up being against Allied field forces rather than the bunkers and buildings they were designed for. These attacks made a significant impression on the few troops unfortunate enough to end up on the receiving end.
