A substantially revised version of Freikorps, under the title Strike For Berlin, will be published in Yaah! magazine #11 (Flying Pig Games) in March, 2018.

Features:
- new map drawn to a different scale with different terrain and railnet analysis;
- new, double-sided counters with new values;
- new order of battle;
- new rules including an interactive three-segment operational phase;
- many new and varied optional rules; and
- rules for a link game to allow play with Red Horde 1920 (a substantial reworking of Konarmiya Year of the Red Tide)

I've signed off on the counter art, haven't seen a map yet but I am confident, because both are done by John Cooper, who does very good work.

Link for pre-order (not set up yet): https://flyingpiggames.com/t/yaah-magazine
Price will likely be $40 but there’s usually a 10% pre-order discount, and the PnP version is generally less than $20.

Copies of Red Horde 1920 are also now on sale at $29 instead of $35, so you can buy a copy now and practice while waiting for the sequel game.

Tempting. I do love my MDG copy though.

Do the Spartakists still pop up in German cities, my wife has an amazing ability to summon them, really messes up my supply lines....

Artistically and mechanically, this version is the best one you are going to see.

Spartakists do pop up, oh yes they do...

The game now has its own BGG entry: Strike for Berlin
