1991~~THE EASTERN FRONT OF WW2 LATE-1941 EARLY-1942 AT THE DEMYANSK POCKET SOUTH OF LENINGRAD
UNPUNCHED UNHARMED IN PAPER ENVELOPE.
JUST PLAIN WARGAMES are sparse~~19wargaming on a budget...This one has a primitive 3-color map, 100 die-cut counters, IGO-UGO style, but with the mech movement phase PRIOR to combat PRIOR to regular movement...In other words, non-mech attacks happen before they move, so they have to set up the prior turn (and try to survive) before they attack...Huge change of pace!
Here is a bit from boardgamegeek:
Demyansk Pocket, is a game depicting the Soviet offensives in late 1941/early 1942 attempting to pinch off and destroy the German units occupying the Demyansk Pocket south of Leningrad. 126,000 Germans spent 47 days surrounded by the Russian Army and General Winter. The Germans began their attack to relieve the pocket four hours before the Soviets planned to start their attack to crush it.
Both sides must attack in some places and defend in others at the same time.
