The Hunt for Red October is coming to Indiegogo on the 3rd of October, check out this link to find out more! Today we are going to take a look at the first way of playing the game, the War.


In the wargame scenario, each player plays as either the Red Fleet or combined NATO forces trying to win by scoring 40 points that represent their superpower's strategic advantage over the other side. Points are scored in two ways, either by destroying enemy units or by moving your SSBNs (Ballistic missile submarines) into first strike positions. The position of both SSBNs and attack subs is a valuable resource that is kept secret through the use of POSSUB tokens, when moving your subs you can place these tokens down to mask your movements and your intentions. When you have moved your navy into the perfect strike position you can flip the scan and fire token to blast your opponent to the bottom of the sea, be warned however that your opponent will be looking to do the same and he who fires first can be at a huge advantage.

The War scenario lets players recreate that 'what if', throwing NATO against the Soviet Navy and seeing whether one side can secure victory before nuclear war is declared and the whole world loses.


Labyrinth pre-order period ends next week (26th Sep). Get your order in before it's too late! This is your last chance to enter the draw for the 3-up model and to get the beautiful print of the game board that is being sent to all pre-orders!

We have extended the pre-order period in the past, but no more – this is the hard cut off for Labyrinth pre-orders.

Normal orders are estimated to start on our website in November, when we should have actual games in the warehouse (unless we end up out of stock before they even land... which is a distinct possibility at this rate!).
