This picture does not do justice the standard lushly illustrated maps that are the trade mark of the Lock 'n Load Series. These 5 have a nice matt finish that does not glare even in direct overhead lighting.

  1. This is an excellent game, and game system. Games cover World War II, Cold War, and Vietnam, and, in the future — The Falklands. Really fun to play and great maps, and counters.
