Game of War

board game by Guy Debord

In 1977, Debord invented a board game, "Game of War," that was "played on a checkerboard of five hundred squares (25 x 20). There are two opposing armies of equal force, consisting of a number of regiments of infantry, cavalry, and artillery, with forts and arsenals… The goal of each player is to destroy the opponent's army through various manoeuvres and battles.''
