    Designed by Dennis L. Bishop, The Last King of Scotland is a hex and counter wargame that simulates the Tanzania-Uganda War of 1979 that ousted Uganda's President for Life Idi Amin Dada. One player takes control of the Ugandan forces while the other player commands the forces of Tanzania.
    With a seeming fascination for all things Scottish, Idi Amin referred to himself as the "uncrowned king of Scotland". When Amin fled Uganda in a sense he truly became "The Last King of Scotland." Each game turn is a month of real time. Each hex covers 30 miles, and units range from platoons to battalions.
