AGAINST THE ODDS 2019 ANNUAL: La Vendee 1793 Wargame
This area movement game depicts the first Royalist rising in 1793, centering on the 'White' player's attempt to capture and hold Republican fortresses. If all goes well, the English may enter the fray. Meanwhile 'Blue' Republican armies attempt to overwhelm their weaker foe and implement a scorched-earth policy while partisans harry their every move. Event cards present both sides with opportunities and challenges.
Interactive system uses cards to move armies, offering high replay value, while players move partisans and detachments without cards. Fortress siege, British intervention, and optional rule that sends Napoleon Bonaparte to the Vendee instead of Toulon are all part of the rebellion. Good for miniatures campaign use, too.
Also includes a magazine with historical articles.
Game Components: One full color 22x34-inch mapsheet; 176 full color 5/8-inch die-cut counters, 26 cards, rules booklet; Complexity: Medium.
