Remember the Alamo!
Play By Email Support Page
This game is a pretty simple simulation of the battle of the Alamo, done in the heyday of TSR, the D&D company. TSR had a brief flirtation with the small, self contained game design format during the early 80s. The output was varied, not quite as flashy graphically as Dwarstar, not as crude (sometimes) as Metagaming. Remember the Alamo is perhaps the most "wargamey" of the bunch if you judge such things on their subject matter only.

The Turn Sequence for this game is as follows:
One game turn is recorded. This is what I call a "staggered" sequence-- first Igo-Hugo, then simultaneous, then Igo-Hugo.
In my opinion, this turn sequence can be resolved using the simultaneous method and Cyberboard.
The graphic above illustrates some of the features of this gamebox. Crockett and the Tennessee troops hold off a supported attack from the Yellow entry area.
