I was at the grocery store a while back, walking past the games section, when this caught my eye. I recognize it as a Russian front game I've seen somewhere, but which one? It's been bugging me.





If you're wondering about the game, it's called "Land War Chess" and is something like Stratego.

Their 'board' appeared in a 'manner/demeanor' similar with "All the King's Men", what with having SELECT "moves in arrow direction ONLY shown".

A Russian front game but not a boardgame, instantly recognized it from Close Combat 3.

Maybe the Close Combat III picture is flipped? I thought bolt-actions typically had the handle on the right side of the rifle?

Google Translate says it is Marine Island. Where is the store? Writing looks Cantonese.

It could be worse, it could be 'All the Queen's Men'. Believe me, this is not a film that you want tot see.
