Task Force - 1950s


A fantastic and very rare board game based around the Cold War era from the 1950s with a large folding board showing a highly stylised map of Europe and East America, and a small box to hold the pieces and rules.

The game is a simple battle between blue (US) and red (Russia) pieces in which the players move different forces from town to town, outnumbering and capturing their opponents. Getting into the opponent's heartland wins the game.

A random element is provided by a d6 numbered 1-3 and a modern element is provided by two atom bombs in the shape of large red and blue discs which the players may use once in the game. Placing them on the board, they destroy any pieces they touch and remain in place for two turns, blocking movement there.
