Announcing Fury of the Bear, an expansion for Tide of Iron
Tide Of Iron | Published 15 April 2010

It is June 22, 1941...

Operation Barbarossa has commenced and the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union has begun. Employing over 4.5 million troops, Germany’s invasion spreads across an 1800 mile front. Pressing forward, the Germans seek to claim territory up to the Arkhangelsk-Astrakhan line. These two Soviet cities mark the proposed eastern border of the Reich. The Soviets, however, have no intention of going quietly.

Despite Soviet defenses, Germany continued to gain momentum from successes in other areas. Operation Typhoon began, targeting Moscow. But once again, Soviet defense forces pushed Germany back. A counter-attack would soon follow...

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce Fury of the Bear, an upcoming expansion to Tide of Iron! Take command of the Germans or the Soviet forces as war on the Eastern Front begins.

The Fury of the Bear expansion for Tide of Iron builds on an already epic game experience by adding the forces of an entirely new nation, as well as new vehicles, winter terrain, scenarios, and more! Featuring nearly 100 plastic figures for the Soviet army, plus new German figures, tokens, cards, and 9 new Eastern Front map boards, the Fury of the Bear expansion will let you experience Tide of Iron in an entirely new way.

In addition, Fury of the Bear will also offer exciting new mechanics, such as a combined strategy deck, a system of counter intelligence known as subversion, and all-new specialization types! Keep checking back! In the coming weeks we will explore these aspects of Fury of the Bear with a series of previews leading up to its release.

With all these additions, not to mention the most tanks of any Tide of Iron release, Fury of the Bear will expand your options and challenge your strategies!

This summer, the invasion begins. Are you prepared to face the fury of a nation?

Tide of Iron is an epic board game of tactical WWII combat that grants 2-4 players control of either American or German military forces, pitting squads of fighting men and vehicles against each other in one of several scenarios.

Thank you FFG for making this 41 year old feel like a kid again every time I stop by here.  Keep doing everything your doing and my credit card will always be waiting!  Can't wait for another quality addition to the Tide of Iron Series.

 I am just getting into ToI and it is a great relief to see that expansions are still being made. Now I have 4 expansions to buy. Better start working some over time.

It'll look real nice on the shelf next to Fox and DDay.  I guess my family will have to look for a new dad since this one will be once again living out his WWII command fantasies and no longer be available for dinners or homework or vacation...

Looks good a definite buy!

Not sure about new mechanics, a new deck, subversion, and new specializations. Each time something new is added it seems to bring up more rules questions or issues. Just give me new units, maps, and scenarios good, playtested scenarios.
