Description Edit | History

This game is a two-player simulation of the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in 1935-36. This war holds the distinction of being the largest colonial war ever fought in Africa and was the first round of the European portion of what would become World War II.

The game includes a 12 page rulebook, a 22" x 34" mapsheet, and 166 counters.

For the Italians, victory is determined by occupation of a number of geographical locations or the complete destruction of the Ethiopian army. For the Ethiopians, they must occupy Massawa and Mogadisho, destroy both Italian HQs, destroy the entire Italian army, or prevent the Italians from winning by Turn 22.
