Red Strike by  Vuca Simulations is almost ready.

Out of their catalogue this one I was excited about. The game has 24!!! counter sheets

Anyway...cold war sounds great...I just need to make sure it's solitaire friendly

It looks really nice too. 3/4" counters are a huge draw. Lots of extra small maps for smaller scenarios. 

I'm also interested if it can be played solo.

But at $250 CAD to get it in my hands might just be too much....  :(

I saw it demoed at WW3-Con last year and also had the privilege of reading/proofing the rules. I am very excited about this one.

Also the designer, Yves, is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

Apparently solo play is down to the same technique as other two player games though he did say there was an air strike phase or something that is normally hidden from the other player

But the designer seemed to think it was do-able.

I'm picking it up I think. It's right up my alley

Just being snarky.  >:D It is Vuca, afterall. With their production quality they could release a game about ants fighting and I'd probably buy it.  ;D

This.

I absolutely adore Vuca Sims products. I have both Donnerschlag and Task Force.
