Ukraine 2022 - Printable Wargame

ADD TO WISHLIST >

A Simple and Effective Modern Wargame

Note that all proceeds from this game will go to the Way Home Odessa Charity Foundation to support families in need in Ukraine. https://wayhome.org.ua/

Ukraine 2022 is a fast play combined arms game, aimed at using printable unit chits provided along with these rules. 6mm or 15mm miniatures can also be used if desired. The game covers all the main units used in the 2022 invasion of Ukraine, from infantry armed with a variety of support weapons such as NLAWs, Stugna-Ps, RPO-As, and SA-7s, to the usual BTR and BMP variants, to tanks, APCs, helicopters and UAVs. Fixed-wing aircraft and larger SAM systems are not represented, as the focus is on ground combat, with support from helicopters and drones.

The unit chits provided allow for easy reference of move distances, weapon types and ranges, as well as situational awareness. This game does not use a grid, and is still a traditional wargame in the sense of measuring distances and freedom of movement. The chits are 1" x 1.5" in size, making for easy handling and good readability.

Unit chit example

Ukraine 2022 uses a novel order system, where players write orders on slips of paper and place them in a bag. Orders are randomly drawn from this bag, so you don't always have direct control of your forces - they may be reacting to orders from long ago, or you may see the enemy activating instead of your own forces. This inject chaos and uncertaintly into the game, and creates a kind of "hands off" approach to unit activation. There are 4 orders: Move, Attack, Defensive Ambush, and Cautious Advance, and each order must have a direction such as "North", Northeast" etc. Units can conduct movement, detection and attacks in a 90 degree cone pointing in the direction of the order.

Solo play rules are provided, using the same chaotic order system, but done on a single sheet of paper and using a D6 to randomize which order is selected.

A printer-friendly version of the rules is also provided. Note that the printer-friendly version does not have the printable unit chits in the PDF - these should be printed from the full color PDF, on to thin card.

Play mat is not provided. A 4' x 4' play area is recommended for smaller games, and 6' x 4' for larger games.

There is a (limited) Tabletop Simulator mod for this game here:

Hi Tom. Picked up the game. I'm looking forward to checking it out. Was just wondering where you got the awesome hi-res sat maps? Ive been looking for maps like that for other games. Can you share?

Hi Gene - the mat is from Deep Cut Studio, if you show them an image of it, they will know which one. Or you can ask for any custom design. I asked for a WW1 or WW2 fields mat with no grid. Hope that helps!

I commenting on the the moral judgments of the commentors. If you think it's to soon...the beautiful thing about living in free countries is you can exercise your right not to purchase said items. To the basis of my real question, Tom have you or will you be adjusting the game mechanics and stats of how poorly the Russian's equipment,training and combat performance are in reality? Any game from now on needs to represent the illusion of a fairly at par NATO military structure. In other words Russia's military is obsolete and a complete illusion and needs to be shown as such in any game. Looking forward to purchasing this after your response. Thank you.

Hi Gene - this is exactly the detail that we are dealing with in this game - the lack of good command structure and the ability of the Ukrainians (especially at the beginning of the war) to have units in just the right place for ambushes. This is not a game of "what we think Russia was", but based on the actual events in early 2022.

Awesome, Thanks for the fast response. Is the system the type where we can design our own scenarios or or they set piece?

Hi Gene - the game is quite simple to be honest - the most interesting part is the command friction mechanic, which both sides have roughly equivalent friction. The Ukrainians do get a head start by deploying 2nd, allowing them to predict where Russians might advance. Ukrainians can also deploy units in Ambush to be revealed later.
There are two basic scenarios - "Advance", and "Capture Objective". You could easily design your own scenarios. The game flows quickly, with the basic mechanics fairly simple (roll to detect, then roll to attack). The command friction (writing orders on paper and all orders from both sides being placed in a bag, then drawing a number of orders and resolving) causes the most interest, as orders may not be executed when you need them to be, or the situation might have changed when units finally get their orders. Quite a lot of fun.

Tom, you are doing good job. People were dying in Iraq, Afghanistan and people continued playing Skirmish Sangin, Force on Force and others.

You probably worked hard on this design and I bet you're a good person. But I do think this is not the time for this game. I would encourage you to pull this from the store and work on other projects.

You're exactly right Walter, and I've decided I will donate all the proceeds from this game to the Red Cross / ICRC, to help support refugees.

I've done a little research, and I think it might be better to give to the Way Home Odessa Charity Foundation, to directly support families in need in Ukraine.
I'm open to suggestions for other charities based in Ukraine or nearby countries though, so feel free to suggest any.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
