In case you are unaware, David Thompson and Trevor Benjamin have created a very unique and interesting tactical scale wargame with the Undaunted Series. Probably their finest collaboration, Undaunted is a card based small squad tactical game that uses deck-building and a modular board with scenarios to tell the story of various historical battles, theaters of war and specific Infantry Regiments. The first game in the series, Undaunted: Normandy, debuted in 2019 and was quickly followed by a stand-alone game called Undaunted: North Africa. With the series success and broad appeal, a third entry was released that would support the first two games in the series that is called Undaunted: Reinforcements which adds cards and scenarios to both Normandy and North Africa along with a solitaire mode. Now the 4th installment in the series called Undaunted: Stalingrad takes the game in a bold new direction using the Battle of Stalingrad as a backdrop. Undaunted: Stalingrad is not just the same old same old slapped together to keep the money train going. This one is a totally new animal that includes some Legacy style mechanics, where conditions and cards change over the course of a campaign. It is also huge, having well over 375 cards, 129 map tiles, 204 various tokens, 4 dice and 4 booklets, including the rules, a German scenario book, Russian scenario book and Campaign book.
