The original game, which introduced many innovative features and developments to the world of board games, is still loved by players and highly praised by reviewers. It received the 2015 Wargame Award from Tric Trac, was nominated for the Golden Geek Awards, and even delighted Tom Vasel! We couldn’t be happier to bring it back for a new generation of players to enjoy.

See what the SHUT UP & SIT DOWN had to say about the game:
„I can see myself playing this long after my paper maps have torn and my cardboard corps have frayed. It’ll still be hitting the table when I no longer have the mental capacity to digest 40-page rulebooks. It may not be a wargame, but it’s one of the few Eurogames that lives up to the brutal, heavy image they project for themselves. And for that, it’s a keeper.”
We hope their copy of the game is still going strong! But don’t worry, a new one will be making its way to their table soon.
RPG.net featured this mention:
„1944: Race to the Rhine is imaginative in its combination of mechanics (…) Not a clean-cut euro and not exactly a wargame, something between a race and a captivating exercise in logistics with a fair amount of calculated risk-taking, it can become a hit at your table.”
The previous version of our game, 1944: Race to the Rhine, not only provided an inspiring and engaging experience, but also shed light on the often-overlooked importance of logistics in military operations. In fact, it has even been used as a teaching aid in military academies!
The game has been widely used in military academies for classes, open days, and as a leisure activity for future officers. Many students and cadets continue to use the game to enhance their understanding of logistics in military operations and to train their strategic skills. We’re excited to introduce to them our new edition, Keep’em Rolling: Race to the Rhine, which offers even more challenges for players!
