Winter War Strategy Game
SGS: Winter War is a brand new strategy game focusing on the conflict between the USSR and Finland in 1939. In SGS: Winter War, players must play either the USSR trying to achieve their goals in the Finnish peninsula or the Fins, defending their territory against the soviet expansion during a long winter where the temperature ranged as low as -43oc (-43oF).
The game lasts 16 turns, each representing one week between December 1939 and March 1940. One player represents the tiny Republic of Finland, the other has the Soviet Union land and air forces.
The Soviets have numerous but poorly led and badly organized forces at the start of the game, but their reinforcements are impressive.
The Finnish must hold desperately against the initial onslaught and vastly superior strength of their enemy, thanks to their superior quality and ideal defensive positions, hoping to gain enough time when threats of Allied Intervention discourages the Russian bear.
Be careful however of the potential weakness in number on the Finns side, as well as the uncertainty of Stalin’s resolve on the other…
The game’s event cards allow full replay ability thanks to the numerous various situations that they create on the diplomatic, military, political or economical fields.
- A Card-driven game in a beautiful strategy landscape featuring brand new maps effects
