Apocalypse (board game)

Apocalypse (board game)

"Apocalypse" is a board game released by Games Workshop in 1980. The game is a re-release of the earlier Gibsons Games publication, "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.

A computer game version was published by Red Shift under license from Games Workshop. It was released in 1983 for the ZX Spectrum and BBC Micro. [WoS game|name=Apocalypse|id=0000222]
