Can someone give a general description of the four scenarios in this module? Are they mostly infantry, armor, or a mix? Are they daytime or night scenarios? Are there a lot of special rules?

I already own Darkest December, which has a decent mix of scenarios. A lot if them are night scenarios, however. I'm looking for some relatively small, easy to play daytime scenarios that don't involve a lot of special rules, and I'm hoping Strass might fill that bill.

Jeff,

Three are almost pure infantry and one almost pure armor. They're light on special rules. One has two turns of hazy conditions before going normal and another has a couple of night turns before going hazy.

HTH.

Thanks, Mike. Are there any unique vehicles in the game - vehicles that are not already included in Darkest December? I ask only because (according to the Critical Hit web site) the module comes with AFV cards, but apparently uses counters from Darkest December.

Jeff,

Nothing unique, but to play the armor scenario as it was historically, you may need additional vehicles. You can either snag some from other games, uses other types to fill-in or play with half the number of vehicles (which DD should accommodate).
