What is The Fulda Gap: The Battle for the Center about?

Stop the Soviet Union from destroying NATO forces in the Fulda Gap and taking Europe.

How to Play

At first glance, the game may seem intimidating with its detailed map and abundance of pieces, but don’t let that deter you. Once you get the hang of it, ‘The Fulda Gap’ is a thrilling and engaging board game experience.

The gameplay centers around a hypothetical Cold War conflict between NATO and the Warsaw Pact in Germany’s Fulda Gap region. Each player takes on the role of either NATO or the Warsaw Pact, and through strategic movement and combat, tries to gain control of key locations on the map.

One of the things that immediately drew me to this game was its unique game mechanics. The use of action points adds an extra layer of strategy, as players must carefully decide where to allocate their limited resources. Also, the fog-of-war element keeps things interesting, as players are never sure of their opponent’s exact movements.

Who Can Play

This game is definitely not for the faint of heart. With its complex rules and intense gameplay, it may not be suitable for casual board game players. However, for those who enjoy a challenge and have some experience with more advanced board games, ‘The Fulda Gap’ is an absolute must-try.

What Makes It Fun

But what makes it so fun? For me, it’s the constant back-and-forth struggle between the two sides. No matter how well you think you’re doing, your opponent always has a chance to turn things around and claim victory. And the satisfaction of outsmarting your opponent and securing a crucial location is unmatched.
