CONFLICT of HEROES: Awakening the Bear - Russia 1941-42

Academy Games presents Conflict of Heroes, a new fast-paced tactical board game series designed by Uwe Eickert. The series follows the development of modern day squad and platoon level tactics starting with World War II through modern day Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The first game in the series, Awakening the Bear! – Russia 1941-1942, takes you to the eastern front during Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of Russia. Many consider this time period to be the birth of modern warfare tactics that continue to be used and perfected by today's modern armies.

Conflict of Heroes merges the elegance of streamlined Eurogame rules with deep strategic wargames. The series was designed to create a tense and highly interactive game play experience. You must manage multiple command resources to move, attack, and take other actions with your units. This gives you great flexibility in executing your battle plans, but makes constant caution necessary as unit activations on either side can happen at any time.

Much effort went into distinguishing the units in the game by highlighting their historical strengths and weaknesses. For example, each tank defense rating takes into account relative armor thickness, armor slope deflection percentage, speed, size, targeting mechanics, and crew training. All these factors are represented in an easy to learn target number system.

The included firefights, most of which you can play in about an hour, are designed to depict the pivotal points in a given battle. You can learn enough of the game to play the first scenario in 10 minutes thanks to the programmed instruction approach used in the full-color rulebook.

The game also features 3 to 4 multi-player firefights and optional rules for solitaire play.

Awakening the Bear! - Russia 1941-42
Modern day tactics used by most of today’s advanced armies find their roots in WWII doctrine. These tactics evolved throughout conflicts and wars that followed such as Korea, Vietnam, Africa, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The Conflict of Heroes series follows these evolutions by featuring a fast and fluid system that is easy to learn, but realistic for every unique time period portrayed. CoH offers you and your opponents a wealth of options to learn and explore the combined arms tactics needed to win each engagement. It offers just the right level of abstraction so more time can be spent fighting the opponent and exploring unique new techniques rather than fighting the rules.

Designed by Uwe Eickert. Made in the U.S.A.
