HILL OF DOVES: The First Anglo-Boer War 1880-1881

HILL OF DOVES: The First Anglo-Boer War 1880-1881
by Bailey, Godfrey

1-LEG2103

Solitaire boardgame in which the player controls An Imperial British Army at war with a programmed non-player Transvaal Republican Army in 1881. The British army's aim is to win the war by controlling the area known as Laing's Nek which lies on the border between Natal and the Transvaal. The British army has up to 12 weeks to achieve this, failing which, the Boers will win the war.

The player follows the instructions on the Sequence of Play cards aided by the step marker and the Set-up Card. If any battles are to be fought the player will be referred to the Tactical Deck or the Ambush Deck to resolve the battle and then the player will be prompted to return to the Operational Deck to continue the war.

The game plays at the strategic, operational and tactical levels on three boards simultaneously. There are three phases to the game which are detailed on the Sequence of Play Cards. The Operational Phase is the heart of the game and represents a seven-day cycle, with a Strategic Phase being referred to at the end of each Operational Phase to resolve situations occurring during the week just passed. A Tactical Phase represents a variable number of hours being referred to each time the British carry out an assault.
