Victory in Europe Progress Update
Victory in Europe

VICTORY IN EUROPE: a strategic block wargame of World War II, for 2 or 3 players. Plays in 3-5 hours on an oval map of Europe.

We are playtesting and editing, finding ways to improve V. E. every day.   A new rules beta has been posted today.  Editors with keen eyes for clarity and typos are encouraged to read and comment.

Drafts of all of the artwork will be shared in the coming weeks.  Shown below is the Axis Order of Battle card showing which Axis units start the game in 1939 and which can be built as the war progresses.
