Frustrated by the stalemate in the west, Hitler turns his fierce ambitions eastward. But standing in his way is an empire with vast resources, determined people, and a leader whose lust for power and ruthlessness could be Hitler’s match. The Soviet Union rises to the challenge with great tenacity and a seemingly endless supply of soldiers willing to give their lives for the state. Can the Red Army overwhelm the Wehrmacht? Can the Luftwaffe hold the skies against the growing Red Air Force? Will Hitler or Stalin be victorious in the largest single battle-front in all of history? You make the orders, you choose the targets, and you reap the glorious victory or the final defeat!
Set amid the constant warfare of the Old World, Warhammer: Diskwars is a game of ferocious, fast-paced tabletop battles for two to four players. At the heart of the game’s conflicts are its disks, which represent heroes and units from across the Old World. During the game, you activate these disks, flipping them end over end to move them across the battlefield, position them to attack, and interact with terrain and other disks it overlaps. When one disk covers another disk, the disk on top is considered to be “pinning” the disk below it; this prevents the pinned disk from activating, and at the end of the round, overlapping disks must fight one another. By maneuvering carefully to pin your opponent’s units, you can strike them down, seize control of the battlefield, and win the day!
In December 1956, paroled rebel Fidel Castro returned to Cuba to launch his revolution with virtually no political base and—after a disastrous initial encounter with government forces—a total of just 12 men. Two years later, through masterful propaganda and factional maneuver, Castro, his brother Raúl, and iconic revolutionary Che Guevara had united disparate guerrillas and exploited Cubans’ deep opposition to their dictator Fulgencio Batista y Zaldívar. Castro’s takeover of the country became a model for Leftist insurgency.
Risk 2210 A.D. is yet another entry in the long series of Risk variants. Set in the not-so-distant future, battles are now fought by machines of destruction, known as MODs, for short. Human commanders still lead these mechanized troops, but these commanders each have special powers and abilities. These come into play via the use of Command cards, which add a new dimension to the game. Now the battle is not just for the continents, but the sea and moon are also battlegrounds.
