Vietnam: 1965-1975 simulates the military and political aspects of the United States’ involvement in Vietnam from 1965 on. One player controls the resources of the United States, South Vietnam, and their allies. The other player controls the National Liberation Front of South Vietnam and the Democratic Republic of (North) Vietnam. A variety of scenarios recreating both individual operations and grand strategy of the war are provided. The shorter Operational scenarios can be played in an evening, while a campaign game (simulating the entire war) can take several hundred hours to play to completion.
That's the comeback of the original Victory Games edition of the game. This game has long occupied the top spot in many gamers' lists of favorite Vietnam games. GMT Games is excited about the opportunity to get a new version of this classic back into print. This edition incorporates all known errata and clarifies rules and concepts with input from the game’s original designer and the years of discussions on various online forums.
