Introduction

This is the TK “Living Rules” scenario book. Text that appears in red ink (such as you see here) indicates an item that has been corrected or changed since the published TK scenario book.

The TK Scenario Book is divided into several sections:

• Introduction: The section you’re reading right now includes advice on playing TK for the first time and general instructions on setting up a game.

• A. Training Scenarios: This section contains three shorter scenarios for learning how to play TK.

• B. One-Map Campaign Games: For those who are short on space, we have two one-map campaign games.

• C. Two-Map Campaign Games: This is the meat of the book. There is scenario for each year from 1937 to 1943; the critical year of 1941 has two scenarios to choose from.

Playing TK for the First Time

If you’re new to TK, we recommend that you start with scenario A.1 Case White. Then you can learn while playing by using this “jump start” procedure.

Step 1: Before you start playing, read the sections of the rulebook listed under “Read Before Playing” in the Case White Scenario Setup instructions found in A.1.1.

Design Note: If you’re familiar with wargames, you should have little problem understanding the core concepts introduced at this time.

Step 2: Set up the Case White Scenario, following the steps listed in “Game Preparation” below and the setup instructions found in A.1

Step 3: With the rulebook in hand, you can begin playing. Follow the Sequence of Play closely – the rules are presented in the order you will use them in the game. Read a section, then play out that Phase or Segment. We’ve listed the important rules you’ll encounter as you go through the Sequence of Play under “Read As You Play” in A.1.1.

Design Note: You won't play quickly this way, but you should end up with a firm grasp of TK's mechanics. And don’t worry too much about getting something wrong. You’ll have fun no matter what rules you don’t get right the first time. We’re happy to report that the game is pretty much indestructible this way.

Step 4: After you’re feeling comfortable with Case White, try a run at scenarios A.2 Barbarossa and then A.3 The Fall of France, following the same read-and-play strategy we’ve presented for you. Each of those scenarios will introduce new rules to learn as you go.

Step 5: After a few training scenarios, we hope you’ll feel comfortable enough to tackle one of the campaign games. At this time, go back and read the whole rulebook before setting out to play.

Design Note: Be especially sure to read section 12 on War States, because you won’t have read them during the training scenarios.

If you’re the impatient type, you can skip the Look-Up Rules before tackling a campaign game. Remember, sections 14-16 are rules you’re meant to “look up” as you play.

You should also spend some time reading the Players Notes on the back of each faction’s Aid Cards – they contain some useful information regarding the strategic decisions you’ll face over the course of the game.

Game Preparation

Step 1: Lay the maps and Force Pool Displays out on the table. Distribute the proper Player Aid Sheets and option cards to each player.

Step 2: Select a scenario. Place counters on the map and Force Pool Displays in the order listed by the Scenario Setup. Unless stated otherwise, units may be placed in a hex up to stacking limits.

Each player sets up his own counters. When setting up ...

• All Axis pieces are German unless stated otherwise.

• All Western pieces are British unless stated otherwise.

• All Soviet pieces are Russian unless stated otherwise.

Historical IDs for ground units are in brackets. (For example: 8-6-4 panzer [4P]). A unit on its reduced side is indicated with the abbreviation “re:” (For example: 5-4-4 panzer [re: 4P]). In many cases, it is not absolutely necessary for players to use the historical units; these are included primarily for player interest.

Set aside all other counters for later use.

© If you are playing an AE game, be sure to select the same scenario for both maps. Do not use any *counters when playing AE.

© Example: If you wanted to start an AE game in 1940, you’d use the B.4 Springtime for Hitler scenario for setting up TK and the B.4 Opportunity Awaits scenario for setting up DS.

Step 3: Campaign Games that begin in 1938 or later will require each faction to remove certain cards from their decks as indicated in the setup instruction. The setup instructions also list the card each faction begins with as its Pending Option Card (to be revealed on the first turn), along with any Selection Requirements that are considered to have been met for future card play.

Campaign Game Balancing

Although we’ve tried to make TK’s scenarios as balanced as possible, players will eventually come to their own conclusions as to which side is favored in play. To keep the game balanced, experienced players can bid for sides.

Bids are made in terms of Strategic Hexes granted to the other side for determining Automatic Victory (0.2) or during the Final Victory Point Check (0.3). Bids do not impact any Seasonal Victory Point checks apart from those at the end of the game.

Bidding for Two or Four Players

Step 1: If playing with four players, first divide into two teams.

Step 2: Each player or team secretly writes down the side (Axis or Allies) it would prefer to be, and how many Strategic Hexes it is willing to grant to the other side. A zero bid is allowable.

Step 3: If one player or team selects the Axis and the other selects the Allies, then each player/team gets its choice without an award of Strategic Hexes to either side.

Step 4: If both players/teams select the same side, then the player/team that makes the largest bid gets its choice. (If the bids are tied, randomly select sides.) The player/team that did not get its choice receives the bid in Strategic Hexes at the end of the game.

Step 5: The two Allied players should determine between themselves who will play the Soviet faction and who will play the Western faction.

Bidding for Three Players

Step 1: Each player secretly writes down the side (Axis or Allies) it would prefer to be, and how many Strategic Hexes it is willing to grant to the other side. A zero bid is allowable.

Step 2: If one player selects the Axis and the other two selects the Allies, then each player gets his or her choice without an award of Strategic Hexes to any side.

Step 3: If all three players select the Axis, or two players select the Axis and one player selects the Allies, then the player who makes the largest bid takes the Axis. (If two or more players are tied, choose the Axis player randomly.) The two remaining players take the Allied side and receive the Axis player’s winning bid in Strategic Hexes at the end of the game.

Step 4: If all three players select the Allies, then the one who makes the smallest bid takes the Axis. (If two or more players are tied, choose the Axis player randomly.) The Axis player receives the largest Allied bid in Strategic Hexes at the end of the game. The two remaining players take the Allied side.

Step 5: The two Allied players should determine between themselves who will play the Soviet faction and who will play the Western faction.

© Bidding in AE

When playing the AE combined game, each player or team writes down what it is willing to bid in TK and DS separately. Those two bids are then summed into a combined bid, which is used for resolution. The bids for both games must name the same side, though zero bids and negative bids are allowable.

Example: Alan, Bob and Chuck have decided to play the 1939 campaign game (C.3). They decide to bid for sides. Alan and Chuck both think the Axis is favored slightly – Alan bids 0 and Chuck bids 1. Bob thinks the game favors the Allies a bit more and bids Allies 2. After the bids are revealed, Chuck becomes the Axis player. Alan and Bob will take the Allied war cause and receive credit for one additional Strategic Hex when it comes time to determine victory.

© But just before they’re about to set up, Darren shows up with his copy of DS. The four of them decide to play the AE combined game. First they must form teams; Alan and Bob will take on Chuck and Darren. Again they must bid for sides. Alan and Bob make a combined bid of Axis 1 (TK -1, DS 2), while Chuck and Darren make a combined bid of Axis 2 (TK 1, DS 1). Chuck and Darren will play the Axis powers. Alan and Bob will receive credit for one Strategic Hex on each map at the end of the game.

A. Training Scenarios

The three training scenarios are exercises designed to get you comfortable with TK’s basic mechanics. For all training scenarios, the following special rules apply.

One or Two Players: The training scenarios are all designed as one- or two-player games. You can skip those parts in the Sequence of Play that correspond to unused players.

Limited Map Area: All scenarios are played on a portion of the map. Only those countries listed as Axis Countries, Western Countries, Soviet Countries, Neutral Countries, or Conquered Countries in the Scenario Setup section are considered to be “in play.” Countries not listed cannot be entered. Any Naval Zone that borders a Country in play is also in play.

Pre-Selected Option Cards: Each faction’s Option Cards have been entirely pre-selected – you must use only those Cards and no others.

Special Victory Conditions: The training scenarios do not use the regular TK Victory Conditions. Instead, they have their own special conditions listed in the Special Rules section.

A.1 Case White

Design Note: This solitaire exercise, covering Germany’s invasion of Poland, will walk you through the basics of movement and combat in TK. It lasts less than a turn, and the Axis player is the only one doing any real moving. The Polish player would retreat his own units, so keep that in mind if you are playing this solitaire.

Automatic Supply: All units are considered to be automatically in supply for the duration of this scenario.

Design Note: We did this to save you from having to read the Supply rules at this time. If you feel like adding them back in, go ahead and read section 10, but we think you’ll find supply won’t be a problem for the German army in this exercise.

Victory Conditions: The Axis faction wins if it controls Posen, Krakow and Warsaw at the end of the Axis Reserve Movement Phase. Otherwise the Western faction wins.

A.2 Barbarossa

Design Note: The German invasion of Russia is the “critical moment” in most TK games. This training scenario was designed to give you a chance to take some practice runs at it. It introduces most of the fundamental rules beyond movement and combat.

A.2.5 Special Rules

No War & Peace Segment: Both players should skip this segment in their Final Administrative Phases.

Finland: During the May-June turn only, Finnish units cannot move, and other Axis and Soviet units cannot enter Finland. These restrictions are lifted starting with the June-July turn.

Design Note: If you compare this training scenario to the other 1941 scenarios (B.1 and C.5), you’ll see that Finland starts as a Neutral Minor Country in those games. For our purposes here, we’ve assumed that Finland will join the Axis after that faction applies Influence to it during the Soviet Emergency Mobilization Conditional Event. Doing it this way saves you from having to read the rules about Neutral Minor Countries before playing.

Western Map Strategic Value: To account for its gains in overrunning the West, the Axis faction adds four to its Strategic Value when doing a Victory Point Check (0.1).

Clarification: Basically then, the Axis will need to capture two Soviet Strategic Hexes to bump the Axis Tide marker to the 2 VP level.

Victory Conditions: At the end of the Sept-Oct 1941 Game Turn, count the number of Soviet Strategic Hexes that are under Axis control. If the number is three or greater, the Axis faction has won. If the number is two or less, the Soviet faction has won.

A.3 The Fall of France

Design Note: Historically, Hitler’s armies conquered Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Holland, and France in the five turns simulated here. As the Axis player, your job will be to duplicate the feat. As the Allied player, you must stop your opponent. Some key concepts you’ll learn in this scenario: the activation of neutral countries, the importance of supply convoys, and the usefulness of the German paratroop unit.

A.3.5 Special Rules

No British Colonial Reinforcements: The Western faction does not apply the Commonwealth Support Conditional Event in this scenario – those troops have been sent to the Mediterranean instead.

Victory Conditions: At the end of the July-August 1940 Game Turn, perform a final Victory Point Check (0.1). If the VP Marker reads Allied Crusade after this check, the Western faction has won. If the VP Marker reads Axis Tide, the Axis faction has won.

B. One-Map Campaign Games

The two one-map campaign scenarios provide a chance to experience the full appeal of TK’s mechanics in a more limited space. They’re also a good “step up” from the Training Scenarios before tackling the two-map campaign games.

For both one-map campaign games, the following special rules apply.

Two Players: Both one-map campaigns are two-player games. You can skip the part in the Sequence of Play that corresponds to the unused third player.

Limited Map Area: Both scenarios are played on a portion of one map. Only those Countries and Dependents listed as Axis Countries, Western Countries, Soviet Countries, Neutral Countries, Conquered Countries, or Dependents in the Scenario Setup section are considered to be “in play.” Countries and Dependents not listed cannot be entered.

Any Naval Zone that borders a Country or Dependent in play is also in play.

SS Units: All German SS units are considered to have Delay Stripes in these scenarios.

Replacement Cards: Certain cards in the Axis deck are replaced with “one-map campaign cards.” These cards have their card numbers printed in red type, with an “e” or “w” letter.

A Blitz symbol on a replacement card may appear in parentheses; this indicates a variable Blitz symbol. At the beginning of the Axis Support Segment, roll one die. If the unmodified roll is 1-3, the Axis cannot place a Blitz marker for that symbol. If the unmodified roll is 4-6, the Axis player may place a Blitz marker. Variable Blitz symbols always count toward the Blitz Value of the card for Selection Requirements purposes.

Example: Axis replacement card 34 Festung Europa has a Blitz Value of 2, even though one of the Blitz symbols is a variable one.

Design Note: Variable Blitz symbols indicate Blitz attacks that may be occurring on “the other map.”

B.1 Fire in the East

Design Note: This scenario covers the “Great Patriotic War” from the start of Operation Barbarossa through the end of 1944.

• Selection Requirements Met – 5a (Political Purges), 6 (New Five Year Plan).

B.1.5 Special Rules

Scenario Display Card: This player aid card contains all the important displays that would normally be found on the West Map, including the Turn Track, VP Track, Strategic Warfare Box, and Delay Box. All of these displays function exactly as they would in a two-map game, with three exceptions:

• The VP Track is slightly different, because only those Strategic Hexes in play on the East Map are counted when performing Victory Point Checks.

• There is a new Axis Conditional Events Box that supplements the Box printed on the Axis Force Pool card.

• There is a new Off-Map Box usable only by the Axis faction: the Western Europe Box.

Victory Point Checks: Do not perform a Seasonal Victory Point Check on the first turn (May-June 1941) of the game.

At the end of the Nov-Dec 1944 Turn, conduct a Final Victory Point Check (0.3). Ignore any Strategic Hexes in Neutral Countries, regardless of whether they contain Influence markers.

Western Europe Box: If an Axis ground unit starts a Movement Phase in any Land Hex in Germany, Hungary, or Yugoslavia along the western edge of the map (from e2500 to e4000, inclusive) and it has not already moved in that Movement Phase, it may enter the Western Europe Box.

To do so, pick the unit up and place it in the Western Europe Box. This placement expends the unit’s entire MA.

If an Axis ground unit starts a Movement Phase in the Western Europe Box, it may exit the Box to any Land Hex in Germany, Hungary, or Yugoslavia along the western edge of the map (hexes e2500 to e4000, inclusive).

To do so, place the unit in any hex indicated above that does not contain an enemy Air Force unit (and in the Reserve Movement Phase, not in an Enemy Zone of Control). This placement costs 1 MP. The unit is supplied, has its entire remaining MA, and can move immediately after placement using the Hex-to-Hex movement rules.

Soviet units cannot enter the Western Europe Box. Axis units cannot retreat into the Western Europe Box. Any unit forced to retreat off the map is destroyed.

The Western Europe Box is a Reinforcement Location and Supply Source for German and Italian units. For purposes of tracing a supply line, hexes e2500 to e4000 along the western edge of the map are considered part of the Western Europe Box. A supply line traced into one of those hexes is considered to have been traced to the Western Europe Box.

Political DRMs: Starting with the May-June 1942 Turn, there is a -1 Political DRM. This DRM becomes -2 starting with the May-June 1943 Turn.

Clarification: A DRM marker starts on the Turn Track as a reminder of this; players should place a -2 DRM marker on the Turn Track after picking up the -1 marker. These Political DRMs reflect the rising USCL.

Axis Removals: Some Axis cards call for the removal of German Air Force units and all Italian units from play. Where there is a choice of units, the Axis faction selects the unit to be removed. Removals may be taken from anywhere: the map, the Force Pool, Delay Box, or Turn Track.

Axis Production Directives: Axis card 50e is a generic, reusable Production Directive card with two new results on it.

If the Axis faction rolls the Jet Fighter Production result, it may place the Jet Fighter Production marker in the Delay Box if it is has not been removed from play and is not already in the Strategic Warfare Box.

If the Axis faction rolls the Production Failure result, it must remove the Jet Fighter Production marker from play unless the marker is already on the Turn Track or in the Strategic Warfare Box.

If the Axis faction rolls Special Weapons Success on the Directive Table, it may select the first or second option listed in 16.38, or it may place the Jet Fighter Production marker in the Delay Box unless that marker has been removed from play. The third option listed in 16.38 is not available to the Axis faction.

Axis Permanent Conditional Event: There is a new Axis Permanent Conditional Event to check at the end of the Axis faction’s turn: Greece Garrison. This event may only occur once per game. If Bulgaria, Rumania, or Yugoslavia have been liberated by the Soviet faction, the Axis faction may take two 1-2-3 German infantry units from the Axis Force Pool and place them as reinforcements. These reinforcements must be placed in Belgrade (e2802), Bucharest (e2807), and/or Sofia (e2605). The placement hex cannot contain enemy units.

Clarification: The two units do not have to be placed in the same hex.

B.2 The Great Crusade

Design Note: This one-map scenario covers the Western Allied “return to the continent.” Africa has been liberated – now the Allies must decide whether to strike at France or Italy.

B.2.5 Special Rules

Scenario Display Card: This player aid card contains a revised Turn Track, Ceded Lands Box, Terrain Effects Chart, and a new Western Conditional Events Box that supplements the Box printed on the Western Force Pool card.

Eastern Map Strategic Value (EMSV): To account for events on the Eastern Map, the Axis faction adds the EMSV number listed in Seasonal Turns on the Turn Track to the Strategic Value when doing a Victory Point Check (0.1).

No “No Retreat” Replacements: The Axis faction does not receive additional seasonal replacements for the No Retreat marker (1.3.2.3) in this scenario.

Design Note: Those steps are being used on the Eastern Front.

Western Permanent Conditional Event: When the five Red Army markers are removed from the Turn Track, the Western faction places them in its Force Pool. There is a new Western Permanent Conditional Event to check at the end of each turn: Red Army Advances.

The Western faction may roll one die and place that many Red Army markers from its Force Pool on the map. A Red Army marker may be placed in one of these four Axis Strategic Hexes, no more than one marker per hex: Posen (w3827), Breslau (w3626), Prague (w3524), and Vienna (w3226). After those four Strategic Hexes have received Red Army markers, the Western faction may place its fifth and final Red Army marker in Berlin (w3825) or Munich (w3323). Once placed, a Red Army marker cannot be removed from the map.

A Red Army marker has these effects when it is placed on the map:

• All Axis and Western units and markers in that Strategic Hex and any hex adjacent to it are removed from the map. Counters with Delay Stripes are placed in the Delay Box. Counters without Delay Stripes are placed in their faction’s Force Pool.

• That Strategic Hex and all hexes adjacent to it are considered “out of play” for all purposes. Units cannot move into or trace supply through such a hex, nor does the Strategic Hex count for VP purposes.

• The City in the hex is no longer a German supply source.

• That Strategic Hex is not considered to be under Western control for Victory Purposes.

Clarification: If a Red Army marker is in Berlin, that hex is not considered to have an Allied or Axis ground unit in it either, for purposes of 0.3. As the Western player, you want to beat the Red Army into Berlin!

Axis Strategic Hexes Inside Germany: When performing the Final Victory Point Check (0.3), each Axis Strategic Hex inside Germany that contains a Western ground unit counts as two when determining the Final Strategic Value.

Clarification: Axis Strategic Hexes that are under Allied control solely through Devastation markers count at their normal value.

Design Note: Remember, the Allied player doesn’t get any credit for the Red Army’s advances – thus the game will be won or lost based on how well the Western faction performs.

C.1.6 Special Rules

Spanish Civil War: Spain is a Civil War Country (13.8.4). Basque and Catalonia are potential Breakaway Regions.

Republican Support: Roll one die to see which Allied faction controls the Republican Support marker. If the unmodified result is 3 or less, it is the Western faction. If the unmodified result is 4 or more, it is the Soviet faction. Place the Republican Support marker on its appropriate side in Madrid (w2710).

Design Note: The “May Demonstrations” that resulted in the breakup of the POUM and Spain’s Republican government moving to the left occurred shortly after the game opens. For a historical setup, place the marker with its Soviet side face up.

Pending Option Cards: After all setup is completed (including ownership of the Republican Support marker), each faction selects one option card and places it face down as its Pending Option Card. All selection restrictions apply to this initial card selection.

C.2 1938: Peace in Our Time

Design Note: The Munich Crisis – Europe stands poised on the brink of war over Hitler’s demand of the Sudetenland. The Western Allies are not yet prepared for war. Stalin’s Russia reels from the purges. The Spanish Civil War is nearly at its end.
