Colonialism is a common theme in games. The majority simply...

Until today, my knowledge of Rhodesia came from the voice of Bob Marley. He's singing it now in the background, as I scour the web for more detailed, if less impassioned, sources. Africans did a-liberate Zimbabwe in the end, of course, and the story of how it happened is on the table next to me. The White Tribe, a folio game on the Zimbabwe War of Liberation.

Matt who published and designed this? It reminds me a lot of the now out of print game called Liberia: Descent Into Hell by R Ben Madison and Wes Erni (Counter Strike Games).

It's the same Ben Madison. I think he views these games as a kind of evolving series on political warfare.

This is interesting. As you pointed out, the game is kind of attempting to steer you toward the politically, ethically, and morally positive outcome of a very ugly historical scenario. That said, I can't think of too many other history-based games that I'd be less interested in playing. The history of Rhodesia is one of the more prominent WTF? moments of the latter half of the 20th century (amongst quite the list) and I just can't see myself sitting down to immerse myself in it for an extended period of time.
