A Victory Awaits: Operation Barbarossa 1941, uses a lightly modified version of the Series: A Victory Lost game system. The game covers Operation Barbarossa from June 22 to mid-September. Game play features the same chit-pull mechanics used in AVL, with 10 one-week turns. Players can play either the full campaign game, or the Army Group North, Army Group Center, or Army Group South scenarios. Each of the scenarios plays on a single map, or play the full campaign game on all three maps!
Famed prolific Japanese designer Tetsuya Nakamura returns to the East Front with A Victory Awaits.
This design was originally published as a series of three games in Japan: Fierce fight! Leningrad Blitzkrieg, Fierce fight! Smolensk Blitzkrieg & Fierce fight! Kiev Blitzkrieg.
The game also includes rules for multiplayer (four to eight players) and a series of optional rules. The rules have been expertly translated into English, with detailed assistance from the designer.
