The Alamo is a two-player tactical game simulation of the assault made at dawn, 6 March 1836, by 2200 Mexican soldiers against a garrison of 183 frontiersmen inside the Alamo mission in what is now San Antonio, Texas. Each Fire Strength Point of a Texas unit represents one man, and each Mexican battalion represents between 45 and 55 men. A hexagon represents 10 yards from hexside to hexside, and each game turn represents five minutes. Historically, the assault lasted between 45 minutes and an hour. In the game, the players take turn moving their forces and conducting attacks. The game ends when the Texas player has eliminated a decisive number of Mexican troops or when the Mexicans have eliminated the entire Texan force.
