    I have actually played in one game that featured were-cows. “City of Flashlights” was a World of Darkness LARP set in Paris, Texas, and was a parody of the authors’ own “City of Lights” scenario set in Paris, France. Some of the local ranchers were weres, and because it was Texas, they were were-cows. Even the hand gestures common to WoD LARPs was parodied: were-cow players held their hands to their temples, thumbs and pinkies out, to mime horns when in cow form–or held the horns high above their heads when in krinos form. The run I was in featured a scene where the were-cows used a stampede to flatten much of the town–until I, playing “Grandma Bubba” (Baba Yaga), sicced my chicken-legged hut on them.

    On Kursk, there is a boardgame currently available as PDF called Prochorovka.
    Also, Flying Pig Games has a Platoon Commander Kursk that may be helpful.

    Panzerblitz? Because it sounds cool!
