A strategic board game for two people, L’Attaque was the first of The Big Four military based games for Gibsons and to celebrate our 100th birthday in 2019, we have launched this special centenary edition! A ‘capture the flag’ style game of strategy, L’Attaque was the precursor to the popular title, Stratego, and was a firm favourite of Prime Minister Winston Churchill. This centenary edition stays true to the original that we launched in 1925, with simply brighter and bolder artwork.

How to play:
A game for two people, L’Attaque is played on a 9×10 square board with 36 soldiers in each army, which represents the French and the English. Players must strategically move their pieces to attack on alternate moves with the aim of capturing their opponent’s Flag. What’s more, they must use their Spy playing piece to seek out the Commander in Chief, the most valuable piece on the board besides the all-important Flag.
