The first edition of this famous game. This Microgame came with an illustrated rule book, 8.25" x 14" paper map with pre-printed terrain, and counter sheet with 112 units. Original edition had a black and white map, with blacked-in hexes to represent "craters" (the 2nd Edition map is a cream color textured paper with brown printing, and has printed "crater" artwork rather than just blacked-in hexes). The counter sheet comes as solid cardstock, requiring the customer to cut out the chits. More unit chits are included than are required of the scenarios, to allow players to create custom scenarios. In this edition, the GEV's only have one movement phase, instead of the two movement phase later adopted.
