Description

Please note that this is a DTP (Desk Top Publishing) game designed on a desktop computer and all components, including the counters which will have to be cut and mounted, are printed on paper. These are designed by some very well-known designers and are a low cost alternative to today's professionally produced games. On rare occasions, some of these games are reproduced by other companies with higher quality components including die-cut counters but most of them are not. If you believe this game to have a professionally produced version, please contact us with your inquiry and we will help you to locate it if it does indeed exist.

The Battle of Maiwand is a two-player simulation of the battle fought during the Second Afghan War, (1878-1882) on July 27, 1880 between the Afghan forces under Ayoub Khan and an Anglo-Indian brigade under the command of Brigadier General G.R.S. Burroughs.

Ayoub Khan was marching on Kandahar with 25,000 troops while General G.R.S. Burroughs was dispatched with 2,500 troops to Maiwand, about 50 miles Northwest of Kandahar, to oppose the Afghan advance.
