There are many war games published involving Mussolini’s Fascist Italy, spanning the years of the "Fascist Italian Empire." More games published involving the Fascist Italians than you would think! Feel free to add a game or two and/or comment? Remember "M" is watching! Here are few off the top of my head...

Title is a bit deceiving as it should have been "Mussolini’s Africa Corps" as there is a multitude of early war scenarios featuring Italy’s 10th Army vs. the British and Australians in 1940, early 1941.

Another naval game - not easily playable by any stretch of the imagination, and the components are crap. But, the rules and annexes are full of rich detail on the ships.

Despite his reputation Graziani's force was thoroughly routed by the British under Sir Archibald Wavell during the Libyan campaign of 1940-41 with the result that he resigned his command following a recall to Italy.

The Italians and the Germans are at an equal disadvantage fighting partisans that seem to melt away, only to pop up and strike somewhere else. The cost of occupation is high.

Absolute embarrassment for the Italian Fascists. The Republican forces crushed them and their Nationalist allies. Features "volunteers" from the fascist Italian black shirt Arrow and Flame Divisions in their bid to encircle Madrid in 1937.

The Italians under General Messe commanding First Army, fought heroic defensive battles in Tunisia alongside their German allies. This fine war game features the complete "soup to nuts" Italian First Army including the attached Regia Aeronautica arm.

Here we have the entire 'North African' Campaign represented on a somewhat Strategic level. It is one of a few in which another game of its SAME 'level'(La Regia Marina) can be 'combined with', in order to create an even MORE complex 'Con-Sim'. Sorry about the 'pic' as it is the ONLY one so far for this.

Blackshirt, The Italian Invasion of Egypt, 1940, is a game covering Italy’s invasion of Egypt, before Rommel came to rescue them from their folly. This game uses an updated, and slightly expanded, version of the Bitter Victory game system: no CRT, buckets o’ dice, and cards...a totally new approach to gaming battles that can be learned in five minutes and played in 2-3 hours
