The better of the Excalibre series, this one looks and plays like Conflict Game Co.'s Kasserine Pass (1972).

Poor production qualities, but was very inexpensive, and is really a nice little game that tends to be a very close contest.

Fun, but not anything to write home about. Map is decent (for its time), counters are thin and annoyingly hard to read (too many similar colors, too tiny print for the unit size and ID on such dark colors), rules work pretty good. Tough one for the Axis to win. They start out strong but they have to take objectives on all four corners of the map. They've got 15 turns to do it but time is definitely against them. Not a bad game. I'll pull this off the shelf and play it again sometime, years from now.
