#6 Another excellent team game, with secret activations that yield realistic wartime chaos and plenty of mind-games.

Ein vier Spieler-KoSim der etwas anderen Art zum Höhepunkt des Angolakonfliktes Mitte der Siebziger. Leider hatten wir nicht genug Zeit eingeplant, um es ganz zu Ende zu spielen - und Alban sah auch nach dem Fall Luandas seine sich abzeichnende Niederlage nicht ein. cool

So, three of my (non-gaming) friends were talking about ways we can catch up more.

I said "you guys like history and are supposedly reasonably intelligent, so how about an historical board game?"
"You mean a wargame?"
<tentatively> "Yes"
"Yeah, that'd be great!"

A few weeks ago I put together a 'brochure' of the dozen or so games for 4 players and asked which they preferred.

Angola had a mixed reception at first until they read the detail and then there was quite a bit of excitement.
I explained to another wargaming friend that we were playing Angola and it should be a lot of fun. He responded "only in our hobby could you say a civil war was not just fun, but a lot of fun!"

So, we kick off in about half an hour...

Released by the Ragnar Brothers in 1988.
Re-released by Multi-Man Publishing in 2012.

Angola recreates a brief portion of the violent, decades-long Angolan civil war that began in the 1970s with the fall of a colonial power and dragged its bloody way into the 21st century thanks in part to cold war politics.

Angola is a multi-player game in which players control the various Soviet- and US-backed factions that vied for control of Angola from 1975 to 1976. Angola features a number of innovative game systems that keep players guessing, create plenty of tension, and reward the right balance of boldness and caution.

The map is divided into areas, and units represent military formations and also special weapons, such as artillery, rockets, tanks, and airplanes. A unique command and activation system has players committing in secret to the order in which they will activate a limited number of their units for the turn. The players then take turns activating their units in the determined order. The result is like a tense game of poker, with players trying to analyze the map and out guess their enemies.

The game is finely balanced, and all players frequently feel as if they are simultaneously on the verge of victory or defeat thanks to an ingenious victory point system that rewards good play for both sides and allows players to absorb reversals and strike back with the right countermove.

I keep waiting for the wargame content to appear in the show. You've shown the 18xx love, now how about the wargames??

Angola is an excellent game, and certainly quite hefty. It's long game, but such a fun game! The gameplay is so juicy. The tension is fantastic. The twists and turns as each side pushes its way toward victory. Even the victory conditions are tasty.

It does have dice rolls for combat resolution, so I'm sure it will be hard to convince Tony to play it. But even the combat mechanisms are tweaked and it stands on its head compared to a typical Combat Resolution Table. It really is interesting, thoughtful, and challenging.

and myself will teach this rules-lite team wargame to any other two willing gamers.

"One of the best multi-player wargames ever made."

"Probably the best wargame I have ever played!
Cool, terrific, intelligent design."

"A breathtakingly elegant design in command and control. Numerous well-crafted and simple sub-system game mechanism innovations.

Simply the best and most exciting strategic war game available today.

Absolutely Brilliant!"

I just ordered this game after staring at it on BGG for many months. I assume the game would work fine via Skype/Vassal if three other like-minded players would be interested. The rules look pretty concise, and the game certainly covers an interesting topic I hope to learn more about.

Format: VASSAL and SKYPE live.

Teach? I'll read the rules, but this would be my first play.

I don't have a single bona-fide wargame in my collection, and from what I remember I added this to the "thinking about it" limbo because it accepted up to 4 players (a long 2-player wargame will probably only accumulate dust here) and someone was raving about it.
