Battle of the Bulge (turn-based strategy game) for the iPad

Battle of the Bulge is a turn based strategy game by Shenandoah Studio, coming to the Ipad this fall. The project was successfully funded by kickstarter a few months ago.



Taken from their kickstarter page:

"Battle of the Bulge is a serious historical simulation game about the famous World War Two battle. John Butterfield, one of the most accomplished game designers ever, has created Bulge from the start for the iPad. It is turn-based and you can:

Play by yourself, as either the Germans or Allies, or
Face-to-face by passing the iPad, or
Face-to-face using two iPads, or
Over the Internet, asynchronously.

You can play as many games simultaneously as you would like, “Wars with Friends” if you will. The touch screen totally changes the experience of simulation games, making them faster to play, more interactive, and more fun."

This looks amazing. It is also designed by John Butterfield who has a very good track record in designing war games.

It is just reported that Battle of the Bulge has been submitted to Apple for approval, so hopefully we'll see a release in a couple of weeks! December 16th, perhaps?

Thanks, yeah this will be an insta-buy for me! People over at BGG and Pocket Tactics are beginning to salivate over this one. One of the beta testers says that it's an incredibly polished product.
Not having played it yet myself, this appears to be an Avalon Hill style strategic wargame (battalion and division level) built from the ground up exclusively for the iPad and should be simple enough to cater to the beer and pretzel wargamer.

I was already following the game (thanks to Pocket Tactics).
To be honest I'm new to the genre but I fell in love with Panzer Corps demo and can't wait for it to appear on iPad....after this tutorial video I'm hyped a lot for BotB too.
(The wait for these titles prevented me to buy BA yet...I know you are enjoying it a lot )
Where did you find it was submitted tough???

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. CAN'T WAIT.

The main developer John Butterfield has a topic posted in the Shenandoah blog describing a typical game of BotB, an after-action report if you will...
