First look “Streets of Stalingrad 4” game map! (Mid-2017)

3 sheets 34"x 60" (Total size 102" x 60") See SOS3 Map/counter sheet, 8 1/2" x 11" paper and butter knife (9 1/2" long) for reference. (LOL)

5/8" counters and the hexes are the same as SOS3. Also, for the older players (me included), everything (map/counters) are in CAPITAL LETTERS!

All 1942 German Recon maps. The digitizing and colorization took about 5 months total.

Oh. My.

That looks fantastic.

Any idea of a due date? whistle

EDIT:
"*this was an evaluation/feasibility presentation of “Street of Stalingrad ④” and no funding, no timeline, no price or commitment has been made at this time to release a new updated game"

Damn. I would P500/Kickstart this in an instant!

Clarification received from Russ

Text is from 2015 & 2016 presentations at Winterfest and the World Boardgaming Championships. Contracts signed in Fall 2015, look for crownfunding first quarter of 2017.

For those that don't want to do the math, that's 8-1/2 by 5 FEET.

A nine-mapper.

Would make for quite a sight at conventions.

Many tables aren't even 60" long. I used to play World in Flames at a friend's house, and that has 4+ maps, but the maps are regular-sized and are all laid side by side, so you need a long table which is at least 32" across (or two tables). But I guess this game is a niche within the niche that is monster wargaming within the niche that is wargaming, so those who are interested already have tables that are big enough.

Are the numbers correct? The cutlery in the photo makes me think it isn't five feet wide.

That's a lovely tablecloth, but it doesn't quite go with your Persian. And what is it doing on the floor, anyway?

(Says the clueless person who wandered into this forum or the OP's living room)

Too large a map and 1/2" counters are barriers to acquiring a game. Not sure of counter size here, but map is WAY too big for practical.

I would have to agree. I'd love to get my hands on this game and I love large maps, but this is just impractical. It would just barely fit on a full sized ping pong table, with little room for charts etc.

I'm with you. Judging by the objects in the picture, I'd say it's 34" x 60".

Hmm, is this histroically accurate aerial image of Stalingrad from the early 1940? Or is this relatively recent imagery? Just curious...also maybe make the image black and white or sepia to add that historical "flavor"...

Then what is the point. Just make a pc game. Im not buying a game that is 'unplayable' at a table. I wont pay $120-$200 for a game to play solo on VASSAL.

The L2 version had 5/8" counters and a smaller map ( granted, the map also covered a smaller area . I can't imagine this will be using 1/2" counters.

The nice thing about that version is that you could play it on a 36" wide table, albeit a pretty long one.

The OP said 5/8th inch counters. The hexes look to be 1 inch based on the picture (rough count of dips on the long side of the map around 90-100.)
