AFRIKA KORPS

Now YOU command in this realistic Desert Campaign GAME


Product No. 600
Copyright date 1964
$5.98 list price

An operational scale game of the war in North Africa circa 1941-1942. Hexes are 10 to 15 kilometers across and each turn represents about two weeks.

Like Stalingrad, Afrika Korps was extremely popular in tournament play. The game truly earned its Classic status as it was still being sold by Avalon Hill over thirty years after its introduction.

The game I examined to create this manifest was in new, unplayed condition.

Components:

• 8"x10" Instruction folder (4 pages) text in red and blue, marked copyright 1964

• 5-1/2"x8-1/2" Battle Manual (16 pages) text in red and blue, marked copyright 1964

• 10"x8" Time Record Card, two-sided yellow card marked with product number and copyright 1964

• 5-1/2"x8" two-sided yellow card, Situation-March 1941 on one side and Order of Battle Reference on reverse, marked with product number and copyright 1964

• 7-5/8"x10" Combat Results Table card, marked copyright 1963

• 7-1/8"x7-3/4" counter sheet, 108 1/2" counters: 36 pink German and 72 blue Allied (3 pink blanks, 5 blue blanks)

• Two 22"x14" mapsheets mounted on blue boards attached at adjoining shorter edges by a strip of black tape, east mapsheet marked copyright 1964

• 1/2" white six-sided die with slightly recessed matte black pips

• Two 2-1/2"x10-7/8" cardboard counter trays

• 5-1/2"x3-1/4" REG CARD, yellow postage paid registration postcard

• 5-1/2"x3-1/4" DO A FRIEND A FAVOR, magenta postcard
