Description

Adowa was the first big defeat of a European power in Africa. Ethiopian Emperor Menelik II managed to defeat an Italian army through a combination of bravery, deficiencies in the Italian chain of command, and well exploited chances during the battle. The Italian Army fielded Italian infantry battalions, veteran Ascari battalions, and less experienced native units like Oculè-Cusai bands and mobile militia. The Ethiopian Army was made of provincial armies made up of feudal militia and led by a Ras (Warlord).

A complete game of Adowa include:
  • 1 map 85 x 60 cm
  • 1 full countersheet
  • 3 player aid cards
  • Rule booklet with setup instructions and historical background
  • map, setup rules and scenarios for Dogali, a scenario for the Ascari game (counters are included on countersheet)
  • 2 six-sided dice

The manufacturer does not shrink-wrap the game box.
