Description

The 1970’s were a great time to be a wargamer. With the hobby charging forward at full tilt, companies sprang up like so many daisies, some of them taking root to become the world-renowned companies we all know, others to be cut down before ever gaining the fame and recognition they craved.

The item you see here is emblematic of this time in gaming history. A first shot into the darkness for a small-time company, its 4 pages of maps and fewer than 200 counters look almost quaint to the modern gamer. And yet this is in many ways an artifact, having weathered the storm of decades. With only 200 copies originally produced, it can be assured that many of those copies were destroyed, cut apart, or lost to time. What remains is the tiny flickering candle of a small company’s brief moment in the sun.

A serious collector can see the obvious value of an item such as this; its obscurity alone makes it an intriguing curio, and its historical context only serves to enhance its air of mystery. It is well worth the attention of a war gaming enthusiast, if for no other reason than to nurture its historical interest and become the torchbearer for this rare item’s flickering light.
