Zimmerer Design Pack

Designer Neil Zimmerer has always been fascinated by the broad invasions of peoples and their impact on history.

When the West Came East examines the First Crusade and its attempt to seize Jerusalem. Were the Crusaders expecting to invoke the new millenium by doing so, or was just a simple land grab masquerading under the highest of motives? Time, distance and local politics play key roles in whether the Crusade succeeds of fails in this exciting little game.

Bloody Hunlikely! covers Attila's rampage across Europe. He and his hordes appear unstoppable. In Italy, his first target, Pope Leo pleads with him (then offers a huge bribe) to spare Rome. Turning west, Attilla meets the one general, Aetius, that can possibly defeat him. Who will prevail?

Both solitaire games feature 30 to 36 full color die-cut mounted counters, a small map, and the playing rules. Also included in this package is a small expansion kit (rules and counters) for our earlier game, The Pocket at Falaise featured in ATO #27.
