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 the 'Four Roads' Annual issue is Out of Print, you can still get all four games individually. We've grouped them close together, here in the Black Swans pages.

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.
