World War I Deluxe Edition. This update of the S&T#294 issue game will
include a Mounted Game Board, and an update of the counters and rules.

World War I originated in a combustible mix of dynastic ambition,
nationalism, and misplaced confidence in a short war. Europe was an
armed camp with mass armies formed by conscription and national
reserves. Antagonism, fear, and suspicion drove nations into a lacework
of alliances. Sarajevo provided the spark that set it off, and in a
matter of days the continent was at war, with empires in the balance.

The map covers the entire war zone in Europe (36 miles per hex) and theMiddle East (at a slightly larger scale). Terrain includes key cities,
certain cultural and religious sites, primary railroads, and sea zones
connecting it all. Counters represent field armies, with some
specialized corps and a few markers. Six month turns keep the game
playable, while multiple movement and attack phases allow for
operational nuance.

Mobilization Points are used to build new units, absorb combat losses,
and purchase campaign markers allowing additional activity in chosen
sectors. They are always in short supply, increasingly so as economies
shrink over the course of the war. Neutrals, wooed by diplomacy, may
bring fresh strength to bear.

The main scenario covers the entire war from 1914-1918 in ten turns,
while short scenarios handle the opening phase of the war (two turns)
and the final great battles (four turns). Options include free setup in
1914 and an extension of the war into 1919. Victory comes from wearing
down an opponent, either by capturing essential locations or by
exhausting mobilization points. In the game as in the war, battle is
sometimes necessary for its own sake.
