They got secrets in there, and we need to go get them. Come on, boys, and make sure you’re locked and loaded, because those Shogunate guys won’t think twice about cutting you to shreds. Stick together, and light up anything that ain’t wearing the Union flag.

The war moves east
Two exciting maps are included in Operation: Hinansho. The Okinawa Crash Site map features a slew of new circle types. Blast your out-of-path opponents from the Sniper circle, create explosions by targeting the Volatile circle, or enter the Covert circle and gain excellent cover and shooting lanes. With so many new types of circles, the Okinawa map creates a fast-paced and furious match.
Little is known of the Kitamon Research Base, so send in your forces and get to the bottom of things. This map features new Locked Door circles that bring new challenges to Tannhäuser. Use doors to slow down, or even halt your enemy in their tracks. Bust through doors that become too much of a nuisance. The Locked Door feature on the Kitamon map sets the scene for some intense close quarter battles.
Bringing it all together
Also included in Operation: Hinansho are Gate tokens and rules for using two maps (and larger forces) in your games of Tannhäuser. In addition to this new token type, this supplement also has tokens for the Shogunate faction and objective tokens. The rulebook contains nine new scenarios which immerse you in the rich Tannhäuser story.
The realm of the Shogunate is filled with new adventures and conflicts. With new maps, rules, and tokens for the Tannhäuser game, Operation: Hinansho is an excellent supplement for any fan of the game. Go to your retailer and pick up this expansion, or order yours through our webstore.
Tannhäuser is a squad based tactical board game set in an alternate timeline in which WWI has never ended. The forces of the Reich have turned to the occult, while the forces of the Union have delved into alien technology and developed deadly weapons of war. Using the revolutionary Path-Finding System, Tannhäuser is quick and easy to play.
New item tokens are introduced? Are they like regular equipment tokens or like bonus tokens? Or something completely new? Please tell me, I'm so curious!
Kinda disappointed that the new item tokens introduced here did not have matching cards. Otherwise I'm happy with this.
Sweat! The multi-map should prove for some "epic" battles. Hopefully the UK will get it soon, given that Natalya came out more or less near the inital announcement, unlike previous releases.
My copy should be coming in this week, along with the Dust Tactic Heavy Walkers I pre ordered almost two months ago!
This new map action should really breathe new life into the game (not that it needed it), and I can't wait to see how this all plays out.
Good job, FFG. I am so glad you did not give up on Tannhauser.
Looking forward to getting this one. New Maps! New Circle! Hopefully my FLGS gets this soon.
