Description

A game involves 2-4 players vying for the dominance of Poland during the Polish-Soviet war of 1919-20. WWI has ended, but the battle for democracy has just begun. Communist movements have sprung up throughout Europe. Trotsky, Lenin and Stalin plan to blast through Poland in order to support the red revolutions in Germany, France and England. Only the armies of Poland stand in the way of the Bolshevik tide.

To simulate the tension of the era due to fog of war, players alternate placing secret orders on their armies in order to bluff, mislead and misdirect their opponents. These concealed orders make it difficult to deduct an opponent’s plans and are used to hide a player’s true intentions and objectives. Players then reveal and resolve the issued orders. They can then disrupt their opponent’s moves, cut off supply and much more. Once orders are resolved the next turn begins.

Units are represented by wooden blocks. Battles are fought with no dice, but with a simple and quick combat system.

Action cards are pivotal to the game in that they allow players to either modify how many orders they may issue, add army reinforcements or modify a battle’s resolution.

Strike of the Eagle and the Fog of War system continues Academy Game's tradition of delivering well developed, fast paced, and action filled games.

Strike of the Eagle includes several scenarios for 2-4 players. Some are short games that can be played in an hour, up to the full campaign that can last several hours.

The game includes:

  • A fully mounted 670 x 870mm map board.
  • 110 action cards (55 Soviet and 55 Polish)
  • 111 wooden blocks
  • 2 thick counter sheets.
  • 2 track sheets.
  • Wooden reserve and resource cubes.
