This extra-special copy of L'Attaque has been released to celebrate Gibsons’ 100th anniversary on 15th May 1919. The box artwork has been carefully recreated to mimic the 1940s version of the game. Inside the box are the original rules (as well as the modern version!) as a memento from the captivating and historic game from Gibsons' archives.
A game for two people, L'Attaque is played on a 9x10 square board with 36 soldiers in each army, which represents the French and the English. Players must strategically move their pieces to attack on alternate moves with the aim of capturing their opponent's Flag. Originally marketed as the 'game to rival chess', copies of L'Attaque are featured in various historical museums, including the V&A in London, and was a firm favourite of Winston Churchill!
Wembley Board Game
Is your dad a football fanatic? The board game Wembley celebrates the good old days, capturing the atmosphere and excitement of the glorious game. Wembley can be played with 2-12 players and starts at the crucial third round, when only 32 teams are left in the competition. Once the team cards have been drawn, it’s down to you to manage your teams to the top. Will you invest your hard earned cash in star players? Or hope the odds are in your favour when you roll the cleverly weighted dice?
