The Last King of Scotland - A Game of War - Victory Point Games

Healthy Heart Hospital - Co-Op Board Game - Victory Point Games

The modern wars in Africa provide a rich arena of different and unique gaming situations beyond WWII in North Africa (where most wargames have concentrated their examination of the wars in Africa). Some of these wars were short affairs of a few months, while others raged for twenty years or more. Each of these modern African wars shaped the political and military future of the continent and they are still finding their way into today's headlines.

The Last King of Scotland, by designer Dennis Bishop, simulates the Uganda-Tanzania War of 1978-1979 that ousted Uganda's President for Life, Idi Amin Dada. With a seeming fascination for all things Scottish, Idi Amin referred to himself as the "uncrowned king of Scotland." When Amin fled Uganda, in a sense he truly became "The Last King of Scotland."
