The Winter War game contains three scenarios, covering different periods of the deliberate Soviet assault on Finland which lasted between 30th November 1939 and 13th March 1940, at the beginning of WW2. The world was surprised to see the resistance of Finland beyond the reasonable, despite it failing receiving the long awaited Allied intervention. And, to the general surprise, the mighty Russian bear was almost unable to crush them and force them to lose their border lands until it threw disproportionate forces to the front.

Winter War campaign scenario 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... There are 2 smaller scenario, each repsectively covering the outset of the war and the last weeks of the struggle.

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.

Estimated Playtime: 2h30.

Favored Side: none.

Hardest to Play: Finns.
