Fortress America: The United States Under Attack

board game

From 1984 to 1986, Miolton Bradley produced five war simulation games as part of their GameMaster series. These games consisted of Axis & Allies, Conquest of the Empire, Broadsides and Boarding Parties, Fortress America, and Shogun. Fortress America is set during an alternate 21st Century, with the US simultaneously at war with Asia, Central America and the USSR. The three-against-one nature of the game is unique among strategy board games, with the player representing the US relying on a strong defense and the additional assistance of laser towers. In 1987, Fortress America won the Charles S. Roberts - an annual award for historical war games - for Best 20th Century Game of 1986. Both war games and role-playing games in general are still extremely popular in all mediums today, and can especially be seen in electronic games such as Age of Empires and Civilizations.
