Description

Absolute War! The Attack on Russia 1941-45 is a strategic-level game depicting the struggle between Hitler’s Germany and its allies against Stalin’s Soviet Union during World War II. Players represent the military high command of both nations. Each player attempts to take and hold territorial objectives and to destroy the opposing enemy forces.

Each side has their own Event Deck. These cards are the crux of the game system. Like in "No Retreat!" they are used to generate events and special game abilities (ex: Major Offensives, Partisan Raids, Siege Artillery, Increased Replacements, etc…) and now also effortlessly resolve all battle outcomes. There are no Combat Result Tables, and no dice! This combat system offers more variety than regular Combat Result Tables.

Using a simple  yet effective  economic model, players will also feel the growing might and sophistication of the Soviet Red Army and the degradation of the once-invincible German Wehrmacht over the epic four years that this merciless campaign was fought.

Four Quick-Playing Scenarios (Barbarossa, 1941; Fall Blau & Operation Saturn, 1942; Operation Zitadelle, 1943; Operation Bagration, 1944) plus a Campaign Game.

A complete game of Absolute War! include:
  • One 22"x34" mounted map
  • Two sheets of die-cut playing pieces
  • 110 cards
  • Four player aid cards
  • Rules of Play
  • Playbook
