Lou Coatney's 1ST ALAMEIN Game's Home Page

Dedication: 1ST ALAMEIN is dedicated as a token of remembrance to the soldiers of the British Commonwealth--Australian, British, Indian, South African ... and New Zealander--and of Greece, Poland, Free France, and finally the United States ... who fought and defeated the Axis on the first "Second Front" of the Second World War: North Africa.

But first....Manual Games (Boardgames) vs. Computer Games -- Points to Ponder:

under the following conditions:

Schools, libraries, and museums are free to make and keep copies for in-house educational use or nonpermanent loan/circulation ... in gratitude for the fine education and research assistance I have always received from such institutions.
An individual is free to make one personal copy of 1ST ALAMEIN for his/her own personal use.
All other rights--including publishing rights--are reserved to me.

A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at ELCOAT@hotmail.com what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are 1ST ALAMEIN's components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need a single six-sided die (or chits numbered 1-6, to be drawn out of a hat) for the randomized combat results tables. (Ummm ... Do you suppose the fact that the current temperature outside is below zero had anything to do with my designing a game about DESERT warfare??...:-)...)

Comments by myself and others about the game can be read on ConSimWorld and on BoardGame Geek

If you are a friend, and/or if you would like to share info and ideas about military and naval history and game designing and cardstock model shipbuilding, and/or you have any questions about 1ST ALAMEIN feel free to e-mail me at ElCoat@Hotmail.com.

Thanks for your interest in 1ST ALAMEIN!....:-)
