"Boardgames made with Finnish sisu"
 
Welcome to Mikugames!

Mikugames is a Finnish-Swedish boardgame company with its base in Eskilstuna, Sweden. Mikugames has so far released a monstergame-series, called The Finnish Trilogy 1939-1945® (2014) and a smaller independent game called TORNIO '44 (2015). To order the TORNIO '44 game, go to the "To Order" menu.

The new and final game by Mikugames will be called:
“THE SOVIET 1941 THEATER OF WAR”.

If Mikugames first game (series) was considered to be fairly obscure (The Finnish Trilogy 1939-1945) and the second game to be very obscure (TORNIO ’44), the final game will be about Operation Barbarossa 1941. This topic has been portrayed many times and by many game companies already. My apologies for choosing this overused subject but a couple of books just got me inspired. The game will, however, differ from other east front games on several rather unique features.

LIST OF CONTENT:
1 Rules Manual (8 pages)
2 Order of Battle Cards (Axis & Soviet)
2 Force Display Sheets (Axis & Soviet)
1 Countersheet (228 die-cut counters).

2 Maps - Main Front & Finnish Front. It will be possible to play either front, or both fronts at the same time (As a reference, the Main Front map will have the same size as the TORNIO ’44 map. The Finnish Front map will be smaller).
2 Regular six-sided dice.
Game Box (As a reference, the game box will have the same size as the TORNIO ’44 game).

FEATURES:
UNIT SCALE: Main Front - Corps & Armies; Finnish Front – Divisions.
MAP SCALE: 50 kilometers (31 miles) per hex.
TIME SCALE: 1 month per Game Turn divided into 1―6 Periods each.
PLAYERS: 2―4 (with also a solitaire possibility).
PLAYING TIME: Uncertain at this point, maybe 4―6 hours.
COMPLEXITY: 3 on a scale from 1 to 10.
RECOMMENDED AGE: 12 years and up.

Unfortunately, I’m behind schedule with a couple of months. Due to a tough full-time job and many other things happening, the production rate of the game is rather slow. The pre-order period will start very soon. NOTE! This time I will need at least 400 paid pre-orders before I can start the printing process because I don’t have the capability to take any loan which has been the case with my previous games. This means also that the game will most likely not be printed until early (I hope) 2018.

Various samples from the game will be shown during this autumn on my website and here: www.consimworld.com (CSW Game Company Support Forum)..

Here is the plan for the remainder of this year:
In late September I will reveal the new game I'm working on.
On October 1st, it will be possible to pre-order the game.
If pre-orders goes well, the printing process will start in mid November.
The game will preliminary be released on December 4th.

Another important news is that this game is not the same game that I started working on one year ago. In other words, there was a total change of plans earlier this year, so this game will, unfortunately, not be a celebration to the Finnish 100-years anniversary. Halfway through, my inspiration and energy-level for the first game was lost so I started to work on another game project that felt much better.
