Secret Weapons of the Third Reich

Allies are marching to Berlin, will you complete the secret weapons to turn the tide of war?




IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The game is not more purchasable on TheGameCrafter.

The date: March 1938. The vast majority of Austrians cheer the Anschluss of their country by the German Reich. Central Europe is coming into Nazi hands and all the best European scientists will soon compete under the aegis of Heinrich Himmler, for whom no scheme is too wild or too improbable. But which team has the imagination, the courage and the drive to most successfully accomplish their goals?

Secret Weapons of the Third Reich is a game for two to four players simulating the arms race of World War II from the German perspective. From secret submarine bases in Greenland to the mysterious Base 211 in Neuschwabenland, Antarctica, this game recreates the incredible tales of Nazi technology, from the famous V-1 buzz bombs and V-2 rockets to the unlikely flying saucers derived from the work of Nikola Tesla. Will players be able to deliver the Haunebu project to completion? Will Hans Kammler escape with his last battalion of flying saucers to the dark side of the moon? Will the secret submarine fleet sail to Antarctica to pursue the war after the war? Or could German scientists produce an atomic bomb to be dropped on New York by an electro-gravitational flying saucer or within the warhead of a futuristic intercontinental V-3? Would it even be possible to build a huge solar satellite gun to strike America?

Discover the answers to all these questions in Secret Weapons of the Third Reich, the weirdly addictive semi-cooperative, semi-competitive worker placement game for all fans of science fiction and alternate history.
