'THE BATTLE OF THE LITTLE BIG HORN' BOARD GAME: The Sioux and Cheyenne Indians were increasingly hostile to prospectors pouring across North and South Dakota. Chief Sitting Bull gathered a force by the Little Big Horn River, just north of the Indian camp. General Custer was sent ahead to make contact but to await support before attacking. However, nearing the Little Big Horn, Custer - his movements now being watched - decided to attack at once. What he did not know was that Sitting Bull had assembled an unusually big for of 4000 Braves. Now you can re-live this historic battle - but you can plan your own strategy. Can you find a way to get Custer, or at least his flag, clear of the battlefield?

The game is complete and in excellent condition. The game box has completely retained its shape and the iconic picture on the box lid remains colourful and vibrant. The game board is in very good condition and shows very little sign of play-wear. Most impressive, however, are the 28 miniatures. Aside from the inevitable but minor paint loss, all units and horses have retained all their limbs and weapons. For a game which is nearing its 50th year, this is exceptionally rare indeed.

For 2 players.
