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.

On February 23rd, the Ethiopian military conducted a massive assault upon the Eritrean Gemehalo fortress. Over 10,000 would attack, many would die.

The WW1 style battle was fought with many very modern weapons. The vaunted defenses of Eritrea in the Badme area had been immune to enemy attacks for years. The fall of Gemehalo would spell doom to the Eritrean defense system. The question was, would it collapse? The game comes with a 11x17" map, 280 counters and rules in which morale levels will create success or failure. Game scale is nine hourly turns, company level. This was the key battle in the war and would define the war's outcome in the weeks that would follow. One side would break and run but which one?
