Open copy, never played. Shrink-wrap removed to verify condition after a long time in storage. Overall condition is excellent, given the age, counters remain unpunched (although the odd small section may have come loose). There is some minor foxing/staining to some of the paper components and the game booklets have rusty staples. Everything remains in a perfectly legible/playable state. Maps are also excellent. There is some light shelf-wear to the game box.

The system highlights the problems of command and morale.
Each battle has a 17" x 22" game map and there are 400 multicolored counters.
