Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa - SlithFox

“So, as we know, this will be a short a very boring AAR because Hitler is not about to attack the USSR. That is a myth foisted upon us by that arch imperialist Churchill who wants to embroil us in his capitalist war to pull his own chestnuts out of the fire. Members of the Politburo am I not correct? YES COMRADE STALIN!

Nevertheless, Zhukov wants me to pick an objective that we must hold. I pick Moscow since that's where I live. Members of the Politburo, is this a wise decision? YES COMRADE STALIN!

And now it's early in the morning and my phone is ringing. It's probably Zhukov calling to beg forgiveness. I'll shoot him next week.”

Hi all!

Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa has been updated to 1.04!

Please, check out the changelog below

1.04 Patch notes

- Added the option to view combat results textual instead of graphical (E)

- Fixed the hex graphic swamp - woods transitions

- A bug with the Free SetUp option that allows the German Player a lot more latitude than was intended is fixed.

- Corrected German spelling for all SS Officer Titles

- A few minor spelling corrections for Hugo's War Diary.

- A tool tip added to the Soviet Intel report to avoid confusion as to what it's referring to.

- Tambov and Stalingrad are no longer possible FSB locations which should resolve a couple of issues with AGS and relocating FSB's.

- A bug in the big ball of code that determines Victory conditions where, under certain circumstances, a German Decisive Victory is downgraded to a Draw, Advantage Germany. I suspect that this has been the underlying issue of a few previous forum posts that I attributed to a combination of easy game settings. Fixed.

- Fatigue. It turns out that, while fatigue is only accumulated while slow Divisions are set to a Blitzkrieg posture (correct), it also only applies while in the Blitzkrieg posture (incorrect). If you switch to Sustained Offensive or Defensive postures your slouching, weary, soldaten suddenly spark up and look a lot more alert than they should. Fixed.

A Flare Path flair point to the first person to identify the source

‘Tis the season to be jolly vigilant. With the six-week Matrix/Slitherine Christmas sale underway and Steam in the midst of a five-day autumnal tariff squeeze, several excruciatingly expensive wargames are currently just expensive, quite a few expensive wargames are now affordable, and a handful of cheap wargames are doing passable impersonations of gift horses. Prowling the various bargain basements like an extra-grumpy Philip Serrell, these are the deals that have caught my eye… … [visit site to read more]

Sengoku Jidai: Shadow of the Shogun - (Tim Stone)

The Flare Path turns five this week. Here in the UK that means it can no longer travel for free on funiculars, steam tinkers, or Bounding Billies, and risks prosecution if found in possession of an imaginary dog or an impish grin. Growing up sucks. Thank goodness there are occasional distractions like this compendium of word and picture puzzles. In the dappled glade beyond the break five unusually approachable foxers lounge. Tackle these solo brainteasers (co-op defoxing will return next week) within the next 48 hours and you ve a chance of winning various top-notch wargames and sim add-ons.

"This game is brilliant. Although it is incredibly indepth, it's an absolute blast!"
Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa - SlithFox
The titanic struggle between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union is here!

Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa, one of the most acclaimed wargames available for the Eastern Front, comes to Steam with its full array of innovative features and new elements!

"Winner of Grogheads "Digital Wargame of the Year” award, liked by Rock Paper Shotgun and with a 'you need to play this game' advice from the Three Moves Ahead podcast, Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa is not the usual turn-based wargame.

Along with a highly accurate, historically-realistic setting, this title employs a vibrant Chain of Command system where your decisions truly impact all three Theatres of Operations. Although still crucial, war is no longer merely dependent on military skills. As the Germans you'll actually be summoned to Berlin to report to the Führer, you’ll have to personally discuss operations with top generals like Guderian and von Rundstedt and you’ll even be contacted by shady politicians like Goebbels and Göring. Playing the Soviet side you will be Stalin himself: fighting your own paranoia and using commissar Krushev to execute traitorous commanders.

Today, the development studio VR Designs is proud to announce that this innovative masterpiece has been brought to Steam!

For this important milestone, the game has been optimized and updated with numerous balance improvements and additions, included a new map artwork and counters!
The divisions have been deployed, and orders have been sent. Now it’s up yo you, General!
Can you balance your forces in three different Theatres in order to achieve your objective?
