Lettow-Vorbeck: East Africa 1914-18
Lettow-Vorbeck is a game covering the East African
campaign of 1914-18. One player controls the Allied units and tries to clear
German East Africa. The other player controls the Germans and tries to prevent
it, or failing that, to grab a source of supply in one of the surrounding
Allied colonies. The Germans historically eked out a win by grabbing a supply
source in the British colony of Northern Rhodesia even though they had been
chased out of their home colony.
Lettow-Vorbeck uses the Hand of Destiny
series rules. Each player has a unique set of campaign cards generating
movement, combat bonuses, historical events, and reinforcements. Playing the
right card at the right time lets one side concentrate the forces needed to win
that great victory against all odds, or perhaps go down to inglorious defeat.
Combat is resolved using a quasi-tactical procedure in which units take turns
firing at one another.
