Escape from Colditz

Escape from Colditz, a title originally published by Gibsons (UK) and Parker Brothers (US) in the 1970s, is back in a new edition from Osprey Games. The new version ($65 SRP) has new art, revised rules, wood pawns, cards, a large board, and a 32 page history book. The box also includes the original rules for those nostalgic for the game played in their childhood.

Escape from Colditz has most players in the roles of Allied soldiers attempting escape from the infamous World War II Nazi prison and one other as the guards trying to keep them locked up. One of the game’s designers was actually one of the few prisoners who managed to escape.
