Description Edit | History

International Game Series game from Multi-Man Publishing.

A harsh, cold wind blows across the steppes of Russia. With a flurry of thundering explosions, the Russian offensive Operation Saturn begins. Can the Russians encircle and trap the extended German armies?

Originally published in Japanese in Game Journal Magazine #4 as Struggle of Army Group Manstein, A Victory Lost starts with the Russian offensive Operation Saturn and continuing through van Manstein's famous "backhand blow". It revives the simplicity of classic games such as Russian Campaign and Panzergruppe Guderian, but with some very modern twists. Easy to learn and with a compact playing time, A Victory Lost nevertheless offers a historical treatment of this subject that has seldom been seen in larger and more complicated games.

A Victory Lost includes:
24" by 32" map
280 counters
12 page rulebook
2 six-sided dice

7 Preparation/Sequence of Play - CRT - TEC
The file contains reference to the preparation of play, sequence of play, combat results table, terrain effects chart. I created the file with the intent of it being printed as a double-sided reference for each player to have one. Geek mail me with any issues.
