Available for pre-order: Yaah! #11, with Strike For Berlin

Yaah 11 cover

Coming in April!

Strike For Berlin is a revised version of my earlier game Freikorps. It has had the same level of revision to it as Konarmiya got to become Red Horde 1920: that is, a new interleaved sequence of play, new map and terrain analysis, new order of battle research, loads of new and improved optional rules and variants.

Map and counter art by the very capable John Cooper, who also did Red Horde 1920 and Winter Thunder.

And yes, Strike for Berlin‘s map will join with Red Horde 1920‘s so that you can play one long hot summer of Central European war, from Kiev to Berlin. Essentially you start with a game of Red Horde 1920 and play until Warsaw falls, then you carry on with renewed proletarian vigour… to strike for Berlin!

Yaah! magazine #11 is now available for pre-order, at $35 ($3 off the normal price):


Copies of Red Horde 1920 are also now on sale at $29 instead of $35, so you can buy a copy now and practice while waiting for the sequel game.


This is my second appearance in Yaah! magazine… my first was in issue #2, which had my games Army of Shadows and Uprising, as well as the rules for Guerrilla Checkers and a short article by me on the value of abstract games (From YAAH! #2: Thinking About and Through Abstract Games)


By the way, if anyone is balking at the price of postage, downloadable copies of all the above are available through Wargame Vault, at usually less than half of the price of the physical product.

    Excellent I’ll get the print and play versions. I actually enjoy making them up too.



  2. The immediate post-World War I period has always interested me, and I have fought the odd Russian Civil War and Russo-Polish War battle. The latter included the Battle of Warsaw, which was fought using Richard Brooks’ OP14 rules, 15mm-scale figures, and a gridded tabletop (https://wargamingmiscellany.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/the-battle-of-warsaw-1920.html and https://wargamingmiscellany.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/the-battle-of-warsaw-1920-some.html).

    If I wasn’t in the midst of downsizing, I’d certainly be thinking of buying copies of this game and its predecessor.

    All the best,

      Well downsize a little more Bob, and make room for these gems!

      (just kidding, I’m sure you’ll be able to find someone else in the city with a copy who needs an opponent….)
