    "1918 recreates on a divisional scale the first German offensive on the Western Front in that year. This was the first German offensive in France since 1916 (Verdun), and is generally considered the last, and best, chance of a German victory in World War I."

    "The game covers the critical first ten days of the offensive. In addition, to the historical version of the battle, there are various "what if?" options based on certain variables that could have happened almost as easily as the real situation."

    23" by 29" hex map on buff paper with blue, black, and gray coloring. 119 German counters are gray-green, 119 Allied counters are brown. Counters are most 'generic' infantry divisions with a few weaker-faster cavalry. 'Artillery' units are used for: 1) General supply or 2) Attack supply (consumed)or 3) Offensive artillery (consumed) or 4) Defensive artillery (consumed if used at full strength). German Stosstruppen can infiltrate the otherwise rigid ZOC. 255 total counters
