Product Description

Theme:      Other C20      Solitaire     

Boxed Version.

The eyes of the world are now focused on the Falkland Islands. Others are watching anxiously to see whether brute force or the rule of law will triumph. Wherever naked aggression occurs it must be overcome. The cost now, however high, must be set against the cost we would one day have to pay if this principle went by default. That is why, through diplomatic, economic and, if necessary, through military means, we shall persevere until freedom and democracy are restored to the people of the Falkland Islands.’ – Margaret Thatcher, 14 April 1982.

Mrs Thatcher’s War is a strategic solitaire (one player) game on the 1982 Falklands War between Britain and Argentina. The player plays the forces of Great Britain, against the Argentine forces of General Galtieri. It’s not a detailed historical simulation, but was designed as a fun and challenging game that illustrates the general strategic course of the war and highlights important historical themes. All sections in the rulebook are preceded by snarky or informative quotations from people involved with the war, or observers of the war. The rules are illustrated with pictures taken by the designer during a tour of the Falkland Islands in 2015.
