What is Enemy Action: Kharkov about?
John Butterfield’s Enemy Action: Kharkov is the second game in his acclaimed series of card-driven games simulating key battles from World War II, playable by two players or one player controlling either side.
The Third Battle of Kharkov, the battle that ended a string of Soviet victories begun at Stalingrad, is the subject of Enemy Action: Kharkov. Soviet Operation Star and Gallop drove the Germans from Kharkov late in 1943 and threatened a complete breakthrough, only to be driven back by the German Counteroffensive called Von Manstein’s Back Hand Blow.
Each volume in the Enemy Action series features:
- Low-complexity, two-player competition with constant decision points for both players;
- playing either side in solo mode with systems governing all aspects of enemy command and tactics;
- A system using multi-purpose cards to activate formations, implement command events, or gain tactical advantages.
- No dice, no charts – players draw combat cards which build a narrative of each encounter.
- There is a sense of fog of war in the solo games. In solo games, much of the enemy unit location is unknown until your forces move into contact with it.
