War Plan Barbarossa was the largest and most decisive campaign in World War Two. For the Germans and their Allies, it was the culmination of their dream of quick and final victory that would end the war in Europe. For the Soviet Union it was a titanic struggle for survival. Can you cross the Volga in 12 weeks or can you as Soviet Russia survive the onslaught of vast panzer armies and air fleets.

Designer's Comments

Colonial expansion at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century. p> Jim and I had played a boardgame about colonial expansion which inspired a plenary game we did for a Wargames Developments Conference. This had to be very simple so that progress could be made in the space of a couple of hours play with about forty people. Almost inevitably, the thought was of doing it as a megagame. As we wanted to focus on colonial expansion, players weren’t allowed to fight wars in Europe (something of a fudge but it set the historical background). Another design that’s on my list of games to update ‘one day’.
