-Summary of Play
-How the War is Won




SITREP: The Day After… can be played by up to six players. The game depicts a two-sided conflict, so if you have more than two players, split them into the Allies (NATO) side and the Opfor side.

The Allies powers NATO include NATO, the United States of America and United Kingdom.

The Opfor powers are represented by the Arab League, Russia (the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)) and China. Each player controls at least one world power. Some will control more than one power.


Each turn you take for a power, you choose which units to build for that power. Then you move your attacking units into hostile spaces and resolve those attacks using dice rolls.


After combat, you can make noncombat moves with your units that didn’t take part in combat that turn. Finally, you place the units you purchased at the beginning of your turn and then collect your income for the turn, including income gained from any newly conquered territories.


Split control of the powers between the players as follows:

1st. commander: United States, United Kingdom, NATO
2nd. commander: Russia, China, Arab League

On your turn, you build, deploy maneuver, and command army divisions, air wings, and naval fleets to loosen your foes’ hold on their territories. On your opponents’ turns, they will bring their forces against you. The more territories you hold, the more weapons you can build-and the more powerful those weapons can be.
