Product Description: STURM NACH OSTEN is a strategic-level simulation for two players of the conflict between the Axis and the Soviet Union in the Second World War. The game has two versions, basic and advanced, and in each version players can choose between a number of scenarios, including the entire campaign from June 1941 to May 1945. Sturm Nach Osten has been designed to retain the playability of the old Avalon Hill classic Stalingrad, whilst increasing realism and strategic flexibility. Some historical detail has been sacrificed to achieve the primary aim of playability, but the general tempo and most important variables of the campaign are accurately conveyed. While essentially simple in structure, the game contains a number of detailed and intricate rules, and introduces several new ideas and concepts. Players are advised to read the rules very carefully, bearing in mind that they have been carefully worded to mean exactly what they say. A number of Examples of Play are also given to illustrate the more difficult parts of the rules, and players are also advised to study these. Don't be put off by the apparent complexity of such rules as Supply and Combat - they will quickly become second-nature once play begins ! There are two sets of rules, one each for the basic and advanced versions of the game, and it is recommended that all players, no matter how experienced, begin by playing the basic game at least once before moving on to the advanced. The advanced game rules than add on to those of the basic game, altering some sections and expanding others to give greater complexity and realism. Sturm Nach Osten is played in turns, each representing one month of actual time. Each turn is sub-divided into two player-turns in which first the Axis and then the Soviet player move their units over the playing area and initiate combat. Victory is based both on the historical performance and on the war potential of the two sides, and is determined by control of geographical objectives known as Victory cities (see Appendix I), with the precise number required for victory by either side varying with the progress of the war. A defeat for the Soviet player does not necessarily imply the surrender of the Soviet Union, but rather the sustaining of such losses as to prolong the war well beyond May 1945. Overall, the game tries to provide the Axis and Soviet players with some insight into the strategic options, operational capabilities, and tactical opportunities available to the historical commanders. Good luck and good gaming ! The original edition of STURM NACH OSTEN was published by World Wide Wargamers as issue game of "Wargamer" magazine volume 19, in 1982. This Japanese edition is published by Masahiro Yamazaki with improved components; both of counters and game-map. Components: One magazine booklet One 22" x 34" game map Four counter sheets (528 counters) Five charts and tables Does not include English rules unless specified in the condition note.
