RED STAR WHITE EAGLE RUSSO-POLISH WAR 1920: Designer Edition

RED STAR WHITE EAGLE  RUSSO-POLISH WAR 1920: Designer Edition
by

1-COM1056

Red Star White Eagle: The Russo-Polish War, 1920, Designer Signature Edition, marks the return of a true wargaming classic by David Williams, remastered and updated with this all-new, supersized edition. Celebrated by many as one of the finest and often sought-after game titles ever produced by Game Designers' Workshop (GDW, 1979) on a fascinating, almost forgotten conflict that would determine the course of European history for the next 20 years or more. Red Star White Eagle is yet another Classic Reborn! by Compass.

Red Star White Eagle is an operational level simulation that recreates the 1920 conflict over the border areas of Eastern Europe. Game play offers open maneuvering as both sides seek the opportunity to outflank and attack. Nearly any defensive line can be bypassed in the wide-open expanse of West Russia, forcing players to probe for vulnerabilities and seize the initiative. An exhaustive Order of Battle helps capture the key historically facets of the campaign including supply, cavalry charges, armored trains, loss of command, inter-front cooperation, rail nets, railroad reserve, flotillas and marines, border garrisons, numerous specialized units, and more.

This Designer Signature Edition provides a fully updated treatment to the GDW 1979 release that honors the original game design. All aspects of the game are being enhanced-rules, charts and tables, map, counters-based on years of player experience and feedback. It has been supersized to feature a larger playing surface (two maps) and larger 5/8-inch counters.

Play time can vary with three scenarios provided and the Campaign Game. While suitable for solitaire play and designed as a two-player game, the Campaign game is credited as allowing for up to three players (with two playing the Russian side). This edition serves as the ultimate treatment in paying homage and celebrating the original classic design by David Williams.

Product Information: Complexity: 6 out of 10; Solitaire Suitability: 8 out of 10; Time Scale: Weekly turns; Map Scale: 14 miles (23 kilometers) per hex; Unit Scale: regiment to division; Players: one to three, best with two; Playing Time: three to eight hours.

Components: Two maps (34x42-inch map size), Two Countersheets of 5/8-inch unit-counters, Three Player Aid Cards 8.5x 11-inch, Four Order of Battle Appearance Cards 8.5x11-inch, One Deployment Map 8.5x17-inch, Rulebook, Six-sided Die, and Box and Lid.
