Operation Weserübung: The Invasion of Norway covers the German invasion of Norway in 1940 during World War II. The game covers all aspects of the invasion, including land, naval, and air operations as well as the British and French involvement.
Operation Weserübung is a two-player or three-player game, with one player taking the Germans and the other player or players taking Norway and Great Britain/France. The game is regimental scale with each hex representing approximately 20-25 kilometres with turns representing four days. The combat system is roll-to-hit and the entire game system is based on the system from World War II in the West. Turn phases include the Air Phase, the Naval Phase, the Combat Phase, the Movement Phase, and the End Phase. The game includes everything from air interception to naval-air combat, from parachute drops to amphibious assaults. While the game strives to be an accurate simulation, the level of enjoyment and ease of play is also a priority.
In your game package you will find three 12 x 18 inch map sheets which are formed to create one 12 x 48 inch map (allowing for over-lapping), 240 mounted counters (in easy-to-cut strips), two 10-sided dice, a Player Aid Card, and a 20+ page rulebook containing all the rules needed to play and a detailed Order of battle.
The game is a medium to low complexity and should be easy to learn relatively quickly. The game can take approximately 5-8 hours to complete.
New slip-covers are now included with the game.
