Crush the Bolshevik hydra or paint Mother Russia red!
Revolution Under Siege is a simultaneous turn based historical wargame that puts you in charge of one of the factions that fought the Russian Civil War (1917-1923). From a ragtag group of volunteers create the powerful Red Army, using all the weaponry and equipment at your disposal: planes, tanks, armored trains, Cheka troops and the Konarmia (the famous Red Cavalry). Or, on the opposite side, gather all patriots and reform the elite divisions that shall save Holy Mother Russia.
Can you succeed in crushing the Bolshevik hydra? Or will the people’s Revolution prevail? Several sides are playable: Trotsky’s Red Army, Denikin’s white counterrevolutionary forces of Southern Russia, Kolchak’s Siberians, Finnish from both sides, or the newly independent Polish troops led by Marshal Piłsudski.
Revolution Under Siegeis based on the AGE engine, famous from titles such as American Civil War or Wars in America, renown and acclaimed wargames.

Revolution Under Siege is a premier display of all the issues that shaped modern Soviet military thought.
Review on Tacticular Cancer
This might actually be the best AGE game to date, and it's certainly the best game ever about the Russian Civil War. The vast distances and impassable terrain make it a unique experience, but at the same time very similar to ACW, with the same importance of railroad and river transport. New tactical possibilities were added by armored trains, tanks and airplanes. Extensive diplomatic options will keep the game interesting for a very long time.
Review on Dome.fi
[Translated from Finnish] - If you are interested on Russian civil war or in the history of eastern Europe in the 1900s, RUS is a must-buy. The game just radiates the crazed years of the revolution.
