Colditz Castle - World War II
An impregnable fortress. An inescapable prison. Until now.
Designed by Major Pat Reid, one of only a handful of prisoners-of-war to escape Colditz Castle, and screenwriter Brian Degas,Escape From Colditz is the iconic game of careful planning and nerves of steel.
Become Allied escape officers--assemble your equipment, plot your escape routes, and coordinate your efforts to avoid the guards. Become the German security officer--maintain control through guile, ruthlessness, and careful observation despite limited numbers.
This deluxe edition of the classic game for 2 to 6 players includes both original and updated rules, new hand-painted artwork, an oversized board, 56 wooden playing pieces, 100 fully illustrated cards, a 32-page history book, and unique replicas of artifacts from the prison.
Seventy-five years ago, Major Reid braved barbed wire, searchlights, and armed guards toEscape from Colditz. Now it's your turn to do the same.
