Random Friday Wargaming: Mission Grenada

Ah yes, Reagan's only real ground war... Go invade in Mission Grenada!

Man, are those some ugly components or what?

First time seeing this one. Made out 1985 on the back of the box, and I had already begun gaming. Look how far game maps, counters and overall game presentation has come over the past 25+ years.

Yes, 1985, and unusually ugly and non-functional graphics even by the standards of those days. I'm not colour blind but I think it would be difficult for anyone at all to play with those counters.

The game itself is nothing to write home about either. Seth Owen made some suggestions at http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/302464/mission-grenada-reviewed-and-revised
