What is DEATH IN THE DARK CONTINENT? Death in the Dark Continent is a set of rules to recreate warfare in Africa from 1870 to 1899. It was first written by Chris Peers in 2009 and was extremely well received by players, selling out quickly. When the reprint was discussed, I said to Chris that I'd like to do much more with the next version. The new version of Death in the Dark Continent is what is at the printers right now. The basic rules have not been re-written. It's not a second edition, but we have restructured the rules to make them easier to read, in response to players comments. The new book also includes the extra army lists and rule changes that were developed after the first print run. For example the army lists have increased from 32 to 80 different armies. We have added are lots of photographs of painted miniatures, many of them used to show game play, but also just to show off how great figures for this period can be. There is artwork and photographs, most of it contemporary, some from Osprey Publishing and others commissioned for the book. Chris has added lots to the new book as well. He has written a history of the period, a who's who of the personalities, and a new game. The new game is in addition to Death in the Dark Continent, it's called Man V Beast and is a period safari game pitting hunter against prey. There are a number of sample armies photographed and described in the book, to help illustrate to players what a DitDC army looks like. I hope you'll find that not only is Death in the Dark Continent a great game to play, but that this book is the sole work you'll ever need for referencing late 19th Century Africa. Happy Gaming!
