Arguably the largest boardgame in the world currently commercially available (and yes, we have put it forward to the Guinness Book of Records) Mare Nostrum is the TSWW game system’s flagship product.
Fighting all over East Africa, North Africa, the Near East and Vichy French Lebanon and Syria, can you as the Allied player stab the soft underbelly of the Axis powers so hard that Italy will be on the verge of collapse?
Can you as the Axis drive across the brutal sands of the Western Desert and force your way into Egypt and then Iraq to grab potentially war winning oil and mineral resources?
Find out in Mare Nostrum…
In the fully colour printed game box (to a new specification for toughness), you will find:
32 Map Segments to the usual very high standard you expect from a TSWW game covering much or all of Spain, Portugal, Greece, Yugoslavia, Italy, Corsica, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Lybia, Egypt, Sudan, Somalia (Somaliland), Eritrea, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Aden, Qatar, UAE, Turkey, and small parts of the USSR!
5040 superbly printed and die cut counters, on 18 counter sheets, covering US forces in the ETO and MTO, 1940-43, Spain, Portugal, Italian Forces not in Balkan Fury, Blitzkrieg or the GPW series (so most of the Italians are here), British and Commonwealth forces, German forces in Africa and the Balkans, plus bonus German counters dealing with Operation Anton, the occupation of Vichy France in 1942, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Trans Jordan, Turkey, as well as Free French, Free Greek, Free Belgian, Free Yugoslav and Free Polish units.
Rules covering the entire campaign in Africa. New options for naval mine warfare, ground fog of war, and the infamous camel cavalry…
