Wargame with die-cut counters

  • Capture Tito !

    Operation Rösselsprung 1944 features the first phase of the operation led by the airborne troops of the SS-fallschirmjäger battalion 500 to eliminate Tito. This game system, developed for the Raid series, is designed for solo play; the artificial intelligence automatically manages the Yugoslav actions while the player manages the German actions.
    The map represents a series of points, between one and several hundred metres apart. A game turn equals 2 day time hours and 5 night time hours; the scenario begins at 6.00 on 25 May 1944 and finishes at 12.00 on 26 May for 12 game turns. The front side of a counter represents full strength or 35-40 German paratroopers, a company of 20-100 Yugoslav partisans, an officer, two anti-air machine guns or two Italian tanks.

    Complexity: low to medium
    Duration: 90 minutes
    Play: Solitary
