Russian Rarities IV is the fourth in Critical Hit’s Russian Rarities series of scenario/map packs, the previous iterations of which were published in 2015-2016. In 2018, Critical Hit released new editions of the first three products, with the only meaningful difference being that the Soviet counters in those packs were replaced with counters colored in Critical Hit’s red color variant. With Russian Rarities IV, Critical Hit released the red variant at the same time, meaning the same product was released twice in the same year, once as Russian Rarities IV and once as Red Rarities IV, with the only difference being that the 88 counters are brown in one version and red in another.
RRIV comes with 5 unmounted 11″ x 16″ geoboards, 2 pages rules, and one half-countersheet of 88 5/8″ counters–meaning that “Russian rarities” are actually pretty rare here.
Critical Hit warns that ownership of Russian Rarities 1 is required to use this product.
