Ever Played This Game?

Are you old enough (and nerdy enough) to remember this game?


I can tell you that I am.

I owned this. And we played it till we started wearing out the cardboard game pieces.

This piece of strategy superbness came from the geniuses that were Avalon Hill games.

It was all about beating the heck out of Orcs, ducking the dragon and generally capturing the map. It was a bit like Risk. But I’d not even played Risk then and thought it was the best game ever invented. I remember it being expensive, far more than other board games, but the box was heavy and felt like it was worth the money you were paying.

It seems funny now that at least a few of the titles created by Avalon Hill as board games got remade as computer games too. Ah, the good old days.
