Description
1914, Twilight in the East models the battles that took place in Prussia, Poland and Galicia during the first year of World War One. Beginning with the Russian invasions of Prussia and Galicia in August and ending after the Battle of Lodz in December, it recreates the ebb and flow of the huge forces sent marching across the Eastern Front in 1914.

Designed by Michael Resch, and developed by Dick Vohlers, the game has been comprehensively researched using a great array of resources, including the military archives in Vienna, Austria. The game's Order of Battle has been thoroughly researched and is by far the best used by any game on the subject. Based on his experience with other WWI game systems, Mike has written streamlined rules so that not only is it playable, but it's focused on those aspects of warfare that made the opening stages of WWI so unique. The game is exciting and gives wonderful insights into one of the most important campaigns of the twentieth century.

All the primary scenarios allow both sides to be simultaneously on the offensive and defensive on different parts of the battlefield. Armies that were on the offensive one turn can quickly find themselves on the defensive a turn later. The game includes seven scenarios; four utilizing one map and three utilizing multiple maps.

The scenarios are:
1 - The First Battle of the Masurian Lakes, September 6 to September 20 (1/2 map, six turns).
2 - The Battle of Lublin, Aug 23 to September 9 (1 map, eight turns).
3 & 4 -The Great Battle for Galicia, August 23 to September 20 (two versions either with 1 or 2 maps, twelve turns).
5 - The Tannenberg Campaign, August 16 to September 20 (1 map, fifteen turns).
6 & 7 - The Grand Campaign, August 16 to December 19 (5 maps, two versions either forty-four or forty-seven turns).
