Santa Cruz 1797 recounts the battle of Santa Cruz between the British and the Spanish
Early morning, July 25, 1797...
A squadron of His British Majesty under the command of Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson set out to storm the fortifications of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The fighting would be desperate and the first lights of day would find the British troops scattered and under Spanish fire. Except for partial successes, the attack would be a complete failure and finally the survivors of the landing would end up capitulating and resailing.
This time, moreover, Nelson lost his right arm due to a cannon impact ("El Tigre") that is still preserved in the Museum of the Castle of San Cristobal, in Tenerife.
It is a game for two players in which each has a well-defined role: the British must assault the city and occupy its key points while defeating the Spanish military forces, the Spanish must wait to see where their opponent lands and then launch a tenacious and aggressive defense to defeat him.
The game is block-based and works with a card engine that allows players to act on their opponent's turn and creates an unparalleled situation of tension and uncertainty until the end of the game.
