Holdfast Russia 1941-1942

New from Worthington Publishing. Holdfast Russia 1941-1942 is a block game that portrays the bitter fighting between German and Russian forces. The game plays in 2 to 3 hours and has only 5 pages of rules, yet reflects the historical campaign. It is the first of our Campaigns of World War II series. Clean mechanics and a manageable number of units allow for the entire campaign to be played in a evening. Objectives are clear. Hold two of the three victory location cities at the end of the game. But with mud and supplies a constant factor, German armor always a threat, and winter bringing a boost to Russian resources and manpower, it is not easy for either side to HOLDFAST. Price: $65.
