The Alamo Remembered (Sample Turn & Review)

6 March 2013 No Comment

In 1836, Americans, who since the early 1800s had been migrating and settling in the Mexican territory of Texas, along with the Mexican locals (Tejanos), were attempting to establish an independent republic. Seized early in the revolt against Mexican authority by these Texians (as these American-led revolutionaries were called), the Alamo Mission in San Antonio was surrounded and besieged by the forces of His Excellency, Don Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.

The Alamo Remembered is a quick, 1-2 player, historical game covering those dramatic minutes when legends were made at the Alamo. In this game of bluff and counter-bluff, command the Texian or Mexican units, defending or attacking the walls of the Alamo.
