- Apocalypse (board game)
"Apocalypse" is a
board gamereleased by Games Workshopin 1980. The game is a re-release of the earlier Gibsons Gamespublication, "Warlord".
The game is conceptually similar to "Risk" but played on a map of
Western Europe, and unlike "Risk" allows simulation of nuclear weapons. A novel concept in the game is that rather than rolling dice to resolve combat, the attacking player conceals a die beneath a cup and the defender must attempt to guess the number which is displayed. The attacker is constrained from selecting certain numbers depending on the circumstances of the combat. This system brings a psychological element to the game.
