I have a ton of old Avalon Hill Generals laying around my study, I don’t suppose anyone will mind if I occasionally pass along an old contest from a 20 years gone issue from time to time. The General used to run these tiny contests in the center insert. The reader was presented with a hypothetical tactical or strategic situation from the boardgame being featured in the current issue, and then asked to send in the best possible solution for it. I always took issue with the label “best” as many wargames have various approaches to victory, and often what the AH General editor thought was “best” wasn’t what I thought was best. Oh well, let’s revisit yesteryear.
I’ll try to dig up the “Avalon Hill Answer” and post this in a future post. Good luck! Answer in the comment section below.
