The Great War is a strategic level, area movement system simulation of the First World War. It is a reprint of the game originally published by Rand. On a map of Europe as it was in 1914, divided into a number of distinct geo-political areas, the Players maneuver Armies, Corps, Naval Squadrons and other types of units; engage in mobilization, Combat and diplomacy; and attempt to meet their victory conditions. Great War includes seven regular and one hypothetical Situation Games, plus a Campaign Game which links all of these into one 72-turn or longer game. The game may be played by from two to seven Players and comes complete with both basic and optional rules.
