Description

Königsberg´45, is a boardgame covering the Soviet attack on East Prussia in 1945.

The Scene:

The game handles the 20 first days of the attack starting on the 13th of January 1945. The 3rd Belorussian Front under command of Cherniakhovsky launches an attack into the northeast of East Prussia while the 2nd Belorussian Front, commanded by Rokossovsky, one day later starts an attack from the south east. However, Army Group Mitte, under the command of Reinhardt, puts up an astonishing defense desperately pushing the Soviets back.

The time is however on the Soviet side and when the defense finally crumbles there is nothing left to withstand the Soviet troops to ravage the country.

The Game Design

Königsberg´45 is taught in 30 minutes and easy to digest yet a challenge even for the more experienced players. It is built around the same system of rules that have shaped both Plan West and the upcoming Tanneberg 1914.

The game uses a chit pulling system telling you which armies to move. Each turn is two days and the game has 10 turns

The game components:

  • 50 x 70cm-size map
  • 280 die-cut counters
  • 1 six-sided die
  • Rules
  • Box

    Please note there is only a limited edition of 55 printings for this game.
