Strategy & Tactics - Game - 28 - Dark Ages - Military Systems Profile: 500 - 1200 AD Copyright Held by TroveStar

Description: This game allows for the simulation of Regiment to Battalion sized units fighting in the Soviet Union from 1942 - 1944. The game has that essay quality of many Dunnigan designs. It intentionally does not try to be all encompassing but consciously focuses on specific strands of the story as simply and straight forwardly as possible. Good advice for storytellers and game designers. While a bit primitive by today's standards Lost Battles is nevertheless complete and playable presenting many interesting problems to be solved. Though only four scenarios are provided with game, the highly variable victory conditions actually make the game extremely re-playable. The game also provides brief tools to design many scenarios of your own. In fact you could say that it is this that the game does most best. It is likely that many early designers played a game or two of this before going their own way taking with them the bits and pieces of the simulacrum that suited them.
