Zvezda Hot War

The year 1990, the planet Earth: The world is very much like our own recent past, but with no perestroika, no glasnost, no relaxation. American presidents continue to refer to the Soviet Union as the "evil empire", and the Cold War lingers on a thousand fronts throughout the world—from tiny tropical states to the headquarters of the intelligence agencies. Almost without warning, the next armed conflict erupts in the Arab East, at the center of the world's power depot. And this time, the fight is not only for how a small Persian Gulf country will live – as a socialist or capitalist state – but rather much more is at stake: control of the world's largest oil reserves!

Welcome to the world of The Hot War: Battle for Oil, a fascinating board game with miniatures based on Konstantin Krivenko's unique war gaming system Art of Tactic. This game puts you in command of modern troops and the powerful equipment of war in battles fought with state-of-the-art technology; it's also the first foray for the Art of Tactic system into a desert theater of operations, allowing players to explore any historical battle from the Africa campaign of Rommel to the Iraq War!
