“You can never talk to a fool. Hitler spoiled the chance for victory.” - General Wilhelm von Thoma, Chief of the Tank Section of OKH, June 4, 1940
A Spoiled Victory is a solitaire game designed by Paul Fish and Hermann Luttmann that challenges the player with making decisions similar to what the British command was required to make during the evacuation at Dunkirk in May-June of 1940. Points are allocated each turn for defense of the perimeter, creation of evacuee units, and moving evacuees from the beaches to the safety of England. You cannot save them all, so you must pick who will stay and fight and who will escape to fight another day. The level of victory or defeat is measured by the number of troops and the amount of equipment that is saved through evacuation.
Note: Dice are not included with this release of the boxed game.
