Gold Banner
In 1836, Americans -- who since the early 1800s had been migrating and settling in the Mexican territory of Texas -- along with the Mexican locals (Tejanos), were attempting to establish an independent republic. Seized early in the revolt against Mexican authority by these Texians (as these American-led revolutionaries were called), the Alamo Mission in San Antonio was surrounded and besieged by the forces of His Excellency, Don Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.

The Alamo Remembered, from designer George Barna, is a quick, one- to two-player historical game covering those dramatic minutes when legends were made at the Alamo. In this game of bluff and counter-bluff, command the Texian or Mexican units, defending or attacking the walls of the Alamo.

With no dice rolling, rules to cover many variable conditions during this historic assault, and a "Last Stand" climax to the game, the birth of Texas is yours to relive. As the Texians, can you hold out at the Alamo to the last, or as the Mexicans quickly breach the walls for glory? Find out in The Alamo Remembered!

Reviews

A Wargame Filler? Is There Such a Thing? by Grant (The Player's Aid)
In the end, the way that I typically judge whether a game is good or not is how I feel about playing it again. At our first sitting, we played the game three times back to back if that tells you anything. ... The game has kept me coming back for more and is definitely great fun that can be played in less than 30 minutes.
The Alamo Remembered (first edition) by Boardgames in Blighty
The Alamo Remembered is a nice little game [which] delivers as an easy to understand, fast playing game. The theme works well. It feels like an Alamo, no-hope experience against tremendous odds. The mechanics work very well and the situation is challenging for both sides. ... I guess the key for me is that as soon as I finished playing, I wanted another go, and again, and again, and again… It really kept me coming back for more. It was great fun in a short space of time. A terrific introduction to war gaming. Easy to teach, tense, thematic, and fun. (8/10)
