    This game challenges the players to re-fight the Battle for Hamburger Hill. Can you, as the U.S. player, destroy the NVA, capture the hill and deny the enemy their base area? Or will the NVA player triumph and hold their ground? Get ready to re-live or re-write history in the battle for Hamburger Hill!

    The Battle for Hamburger Hill lasts 11 turn-pair game-days (with a night turn each game-day also). Each turn, players alternate moving and attacking each other’s forces on the game map, which is divided into hexes. Combat can include small arms firefights between adjacent units or fire missions that target hexes with artillery, airstrikes, helicopter gunships and mortars.

    At the end of each combat phase, once all fire combat is complete, adjacent units may conduct close quarters combat (CQC) to decide which force will occupy contested hexes. Each game-day, after all movement and combat is completed, both sides draw cards to determine special actions for the future day’s turns and may get reinforcements according to card events, history and the roll of the dice.

    As the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) player, your goal is to hold hill 937 and hill 916. If, at the end of the last turn, the U.S. player does not control both of the summit hexes, you have won.

    As the Allied player, your goal is to control both summit hexes at the same time. Whenever the U.S. player has accomplished this at the end of a game-day, the game ends with a U.S. victory.
