Strike the Bear

Against the Odds broke new ground with the 2010 Annual. Four Roads to Moscow included four different, complete games from four top designers, each one taking their own approach to cover Barbarossa. There have been “quad games” before, but never like this.

While many people are thrilled to get all four, we figured a few folks might have a favored designer and only want that game. We aim to please. So, if you want to try just one or two of the “Four Roads,” the option is here.

Strike the Bear by Roger Nord offers a very new map treatment, with octagons (Oxes) and small diamonds which abstractly aids the differences between flexible, mechanized forces and lumbering foot organizations.

The victory objectives change as the game proceeds, so players have to deal with uncertainty that represents dictates from high command.

Strike the Bear comes with 108 mounted and die-cut 9/16" counters, and a 17" x 22" full color map with rules and charts.

You can buy the Strike the Bear game separately here, or you can find it included inside the ATO 2010 Annual issue recommended below.
