DAYS OF IRE: BUDAPEST 1956 (Cloud Island Games/Mr. B Games, 1 to 4 players, ages 10 and up, 60-90 minutes; $64.95)
Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 is a semi abstract simulation of the seven crucial days in Budapest of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution for one to four players created by Mihaly Vincze, David Turczi and Katalin Nimmerfroh. The game can be played either cooperatively (using Zhukhov rules) where everyone play revolutionaries against a pre-programmed General Zhukov deck or as a one vs many game (using the conflict rules set) where one player plays the Soviets vs the other players playing the revolutionaries. My review covers the one vs many rules set though I will mention my thoughts on the cooperative version later.
