Streets of Stalingrad 4 is a multi-player, company-level boardgame about the German 1942 Fall offensive to take the city of Stalingrad street-by-street, block-by-block. It includes many two-player scenarios and new aviation and river crossing components. The original SOS was published in 1979 followed by two more editions, the last one in 2002. It is considered one of the all-time classic wargames. This fourth edition is a major graphic redesign and game expansion by Lombardy Studios and 626 Designs. SOS4 includes the latest historical information and orders-of-battle based on never-before-seen Soviet archival records and images. A Kickstarter for playtest kits is scheduled for May 2017; the full monster game Kickstarter will launch in September 2017 and run during the 75th anniversary of the battle.

The map folds are strategically placed and each sheet can be folded to the minimal size for most scenario requirements. Alternatively, you can back-fold and add a few more map printed charts. The game comes with a complete set of hand-held aids, charts and tables.

Major revision to counters (playing pieces) with a new streamlined color coding system to aid in sorting and regimental/battalion unit integrity rules. In addition, all counters are marked with correct 1942 Soviet and German units order-of-battle symbology. For those who prefer NATO symbols, on the bottom of each counter is a reference line to help identify the unit types.

SOS4 includes a major expansion of the air units and their mission types, including: the German air force now has aerial Volga River mining capabilities to interdict Soviet supplies and reinforcements; and the Henschel Hs-129 ground attack aircraft that was operational in the Stalingrad sector during August and September 1942.

Numerous playing charts, tables, rules and examples, including the new Terrain Quick Reference Booklet. No need to lift a row of counters to see the terrain or line-of-sight.

One new enhancement to SOS4 is the Soviet riverine forces, including the Volga River Military Flotilla, the Lower Volga River Steamship Company and the Volgatanker Company. For the expansion of these new units, the play system (rules) and map now extends past the Eastern edge of the Volga River, and you as the Soviet player will have to form convoys to move men and materiel running the German gauntlet of aerial attacks, artillery and riverine mines.
