Budapest, November 1956. The Soviet-imposed Communist government of Hungary has fallen. Newly inaugurated President Imre Nagy, swept along by the momentum of the popular revolution, has declared an end to the one-party system and threatened to pull out of the Warsaw Pact and declare neutrality. The Soviet government cannot allow this defection and launches Operation Whirlwind a military intervention in Hungary to restore order, culminating in a desperate battle in the streets of Budapest. Featuring NEW packaging (the tins are gone, we introduce the new cardboard boxes), NEW counters (thicker cardstock, familiar to wargame fans), and another sure-fire scenario by designer Brian Train (Arriba Espana, Smokejumpers, Warplan Crimson). Operation Whirlwind is the 10th Counter Strike strategy simulation released by Fiery Dragon, and will be followed by several titles this year. Support includes interactive websites www.fierydrgon.com and www.counterstrikegames.com, as well as GenCon appearances and other web-based promotions. The new-look boxes are numbered to promote the line as a complete collection and spur on back-catalogue sales.
