This gamebox is done for Perry Moore's latest DTP effort, entitled Mamanachos, Tactical Warfare in Spain.   The scale is close tactical, with the manuever unit being a "squadlet" of four men.  Think of Squad Leader but even more claustrophobic. 

NOTICE: This Gamebox is created using Dale Larson's excellent Play By Email utility, Cyberboard (the poor man's Aide De Camp!)

NOTICE 2: Noel Wright has corrected some map errors on the gamebox file.  The download file on this page includes the corrected version.  Thanks go out to Noel Wright.

The Action

Scenario One

The graphic above illustrates some of the features of this gamebox. This is the first scenario, "Direct Soviet Intervention".  The Italians, under Roata, await the advance of Russian T-26s, armed with Molotov cocktails and CV-35 mini tanks.  The Tank Commander graphics are my own, and represent an actual tank commander of the period.  I also added graphics for Blockhouses.
