Freezing Inferno is a medium level wargame covering one of the conflicts at the beginning of World War 2 between the USSR and Finland, also known as The Winter War (1939-1940). Game duration is 4-6 hours and it can be played by 1 or 2 players age 14+.
The game uses unique battle resolving mechanisms from “March on the Drina” (first game of Princeps Games Studio), but with many upgrades such as terrain and weather modifiers, usage of Combat Result Table and optional modules such as Diplomacy and Technological-tactical improvements.
The Calendar with the most important events of the period as used in “March on the Drina” is also an important part of the game and here it comes upgraded – you have three cards for each round of the game so the effects the cards bring are different every time you play. This, combined with variable setup regarding to the units number, layout and strength and variable winning conditions make this game’s replayability value high.
The game has a beautiful eight-folded 25“ x 39“ mounted board with thick 20x20mm counters and a practical cardboard insert for storing your punched counters, markers and dice, which allow the players to store and move the game without having to worry that the components might get damaged.
