USAGE: German VhC pronunciation

From:Mark J. Reed <markjreed@...>

For her birthday my wife received a German card game called
Drahtseilakt.  (We are of the opinion that the best board and
card games come from Germany, and this one looks interesting
so far.)  My question, however, is how to pronounce the name -
specifically, the |h|.   Is it silent?  Is it pronounced as [h],
which feels awkward, but not impossible, to my English-speaking tongue
in that position? Does it affect the preceding |a| somehow?
