Valkyrie: Crisis in Berlin is a digital Gameworks mini strategy game for the Web and mobile platforms covering the aftermath of the 20 July plot in 1944 by German army officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler and use the Operation Valkyrie national emergency plan to take control of the country.

The game starts at noon on July 20. Von Stauffenberg's suitcase bomb has been detonated. The Fuehrer Adolf Hitler is thought to be dead. Operation Valkyrie has been put into motion. The dreaded SS under Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler have rejected the decree and moved to seize control of Berlin.

Starting the Game

-Tap the [REBEL] or [NAZI] buttons to set either side to Human or AI control.
-Tap the [START] button to begin the game.

Note: For a head to head 'hot-seat' game, set both factions to Human.

Grossdeutschland Division

Game Concepts

Winning: Gaining Control of Berlin
The first faction to begin their turn segment occupying the four control sectors in Berlin gains control of the government and victory is declared. If neither faction is capable of gaining control due to loss of units or the crisis period extends more than 12 hours (48 turns) the game is declared a draw and Germany falls into a greater Civil War.

Control Sectors:
Communications, Propaganda,Government, and Armory

Factions gain one additional Command Point for each Control Sector occupied.

Communication Suppression:
The faction occupying the Communications Sector will attempt to suppress any confirmation of Hitler's status should it be detrimental to their cause. For example, in a scenario where a confirmation message of 'The Fuhrer's' death arrived from Rastenberg, the Nazi Party would attempt to suppress the information, thereby keeping the GD neutral in the conflict.

The faction occupying the Armory control sector gains an additional strength point in any combat action

To move a unit, tap on it, then tap on the cell that you would like to move to. A unit's available moves are always indicated with a target 'crosshair' icon.

Capturing Units

When opposing units occupy adjacent cells, they are in position to attack. To launch an attack, first select the unit you'd like to attack with, then tap on the enemy unit you'd like to attack.

-A selected unit's possible attacks are always indicated by a red selection box on enemy targets
-Units may attack any adjacent enemy unit, however diagonal attacks are not allowed.

The unit with the higher attack strength has the greatest probability of capturing the enemy piece. If the defending unit is eliminated, the attacker automatically advances into the cell occupied by the defending unit. If the defending unit prevails, it remains in the cell it occupies. If both units are destroyed, they are removed from the map.


Leaders cannot move or attack and defend as Atk Strength 1 infantry squads.
