A great cross between Risk combat and Small World area control. Game length is a bit long and it plays better with more players.

1993 Avalon Hill edition. The bits are in good condition and the box isn't bad for its age. Some shelf ware and dishing.

History of the World is a fun, light hearted game of world domination, walking along the history of civilizations through the WWI timeframe.

First off, if you have time to play it through, you will get to know yoir opponent better.

Second, I think it helps to fascinate you with history, which is a great sign for interesting company.

Third, the interaction is as much on what civilizations others have, or may want (and not setting them up for a big score) as it is on maximizing your situation. That makes it enjoyable for many levels of gamers, even in the same game.

Anyone with the taste to own this, near enough for me to play it more often?

Yeah, we'll be pals.

Are there particular historically-based games you enjoy? In what ways do they reflect or represent the original events well? In what ways don't they?

History of the World
This game was terrible. That's all I can say. It was terrible then and it is still terrible today. So much so that I haven't played it since. The catch up mechanic is just not for me and the game goes way too long.

Original Avalon Hill Edition with the chits.

It has a torn corner and the chits have a decent amount of discoloration. Otherwise the components seem all there and in good condition (no marked cards, etc).

I'd rate it Fair due to the box. Never played by me since I got it in a math trade years ago (I thought I was getting the one with plastic pieces so I never played this one).

Condition: Some whitening on the box, but overall excellent condition. Rulebook is a little bent up. Cards and bits are great.

Edition: AH edition with the million little plastic dolls.

Shipping: I'll cover shipping in the US. I'll cover the first $10 shipping to any other country on earth so long as USPS will deliver there.

Beautiful sunny day here in London.

Popped into Oxfam in Wimbledon this lunchtime and scanned the meagre selection of jigsaw puzzles and supermarket own brand Guess Who knock offs. Scanned them again to be sure I hadn't missed anything. Wandered off to look at the books. Came back, scanned the shelves again. Hang on a mo, what's that in the amazingly drab blue box? History of The World!

I've pondered copies of this on eBay a few times, very happy to find one in the wild.

Edition pictured, haven't checked for completeness but there are a heck of a lot of cards and counters in the box, hundreds and hundreds of the blighters, so I'm hopeful.

Oxfam Wimbledon, £1.99 (plus 5p for a bag)

Largely here on nostalgic value, this is a once a year game. Not a ton of strategy, but truly feels epic, and taught me a lot of history.
