In the year 1977, Atlantic produced, inside their 15 games-line called “Il Gioco delle Battaglie” (The Game of Battles), 5 "board-wargames" of the Old West/Indian Wars theme (code numbers from 1456 to 1460 in their catalog).
Each set included 1/72-HO scale toy soldiers, vehicles and accessories from Atlantic production, plus a different playing field game-map, related rules and historical introductory notes for every battle.
The game-maps (large pieces of paper of 68 for 68,5x49 cm) were photographs from above of 3D dioramas of hypothetical battlefields of the battles represented. On the back of the game-map sheets were shown the assembly diagrams for the parts contained in the package and the game rules, in four languages, with numerous illustrations for clarification.
The main fight rules were checkers/chess like: the player pieces must enter the enemy squares to eliminate his soldiers, with some hierarchical precedencies: e.g. no foot soldiers can eliminate horse-mounted ones. Non dice were used anywhere in the games.
From the publisher (Translated):
Washita River - November 27, 1868
General Phil Sheridan, who commanded the troops of Missouri, carried out many attacks against the hostile Indians. Among his officers there was Lieutenant-colonel George Armstrong Custer, who, out of insubordination, had been reintegrated in a lower rank under Sheridan's orders. On 26th November 1868 Custer set off at the
head of his troops. The day after, at dawn, an Indian village on the Washita River was in view of the division. Custer surrounded the Cheyennes village and ordered the attack and spared nobody: the peaceful Indian tribe whose chief Black Kier had always trusted the whites was fully overwhelmed. It was an awlul massacre and no Indian escaped death. The women and children who escaped the slaughter where taken prisoners.
