The goal of Pavlov’s House is to last until the defenders of Pavlov’s House are tasked with storming a key German strongpoint during the Battle of Stalingrad. In the game, this is depicted by playing through a deck of cards representing elements of the German 6th Army.

Pavlov’s House was a fortified apartment building used as a strongpoint by the Soviet 62nd Army during the pivotal Battle of Stalingrad in WW2. Soviet defenders – primarily from the 7th Company, 3rd Battalion, 42nd Guards Rifle Regiment of the 13th Guards Division - held out for almost two months from a constant German assault. The building’s name was drawn from Yakov Pavlov, a sergeant who led the initial storm group assault that resulted in the capture of the building from the Germans. The story of Pavlov’s House was a key piece of Soviet propaganda and was used as a symbol of the incredible resistance of Soviet forces during the Battle of Stalingrad.

Superb wargame board game port

Thank you Mr. Berger. Bought it for playing on alienware portable, macbook pro and ipad mini. Great on all. Good walk you into game as you play tutorial. Extensive, good documentation in game from main menu as well as original board game manual. I bought kindle book “Pavlov's House” for a couple of bucks to add to terrific immersion. What a treat! On all platforms no less! Great price!

Medicine for our isolation in this pandemic time. Thank you, good sir. You are an artist and a helper to us all.

Great port of a fun game

Pavlov’s House is a great port of a very engaging board game. It is not a mindless game but it is quite accessible if you are willing to read a bit. Play a few games and then delve deeper into the rules to see what you have been missing. And after that, read some of the history and developer notes that are included. You won’t be disappointed.
