Description Edit | History

No Retreat! is a two-player wargame that retells the story of the titanic struggle between the invading armies of Nazi Germany versus Communist Russia during WW2 at a player-friendly and manageable level in scope and difficulty. Each turn is alight with intriguing on-board challenges plus the surprise of card hand Events as players vie to win in one of three different ways.

In a skillfully blended collation of classic hex-based wargaming and modern card-driven simulations, No Retreat! stays truly story-centric, providing the proper feel of sweeping maneuvers, exploitation and encirclements across the vast steppes and forests of Russia. With a simple-yet-innovative economic model, players will also feel the growing might and sophistication of the Russian’s Red Army, and the degradation of the once-invincible German Wehrmacht, over the epic four year sweep of time that this merciless campaign was fought.

Neither side can afford the disgrace of yielding an inch of ground to their hated foe, so your orders are: “No Retreat!”

More Information Edit | History

Kokusai-Tsushin Co., Ltd. republished it in World War Series #1 in 2009.



Germany manoeuvre turn 1:

On the first turn army group centre should surround Western front but not attack, the Russians either get sucked forward to run supply in leaving a sub-optimal line subject to counterblows or they give up a cheap vp when it surrenders.
