After five long years of weary battles you’re about to embark on one of the coldest and most bitter fights of the war—and Days of Wonder have packed this expansion with everything you could ever need to combat in a snow-covered environment!
But judge for yourself, soldier!
Inside the new Winter Wars: The Ardennes Offensive expansion you’ll find:
– 88 double-sided Winter tiles, 28 Special Unit badges, 20 round markers and 16 obstacles
– 20 Winter Combat cards, similar in concept to the Urban Combat cards introduced in Battle Map Volume 3: Sword of Stalingrad
– 80 new Command cards, designed specifically for Breakthrough battles
– New Winter Combat rules
– New Troops, including the all new Tank Destroyer and Heavy Anti-Tank Gun units and Late War model versions of an Anti-Tank Gun, Mortar and Machine Gun
These will all be critical to fighting (and winning!) the ten scenarios in this expansion—all focused on those crucial two weeks of Christmas 1944 in the Ardennes.
The first six scenarios included are all standard scenarios, playable with a single base game and this expansion alone (though a Winter/Desert board will add a nice cosmetic touch to your battlefield). The four scenarios that follow are gigantic Breakthrough renditions of the Battle of the Bulge. These will require a single copy of the already released Eastern Front expansion, and the Breakthrough kit of board maps, in addition to the aforementioned expansion.
