Avalon Hill Spi Roger Cormier Lord Nelson At Trafalgar. Rare Complete 1968 Nice :
Roger R. Cormier's Lord Nelson at TRAFALGAR. This is arguably the holy grail of boardgame collectibles. There were only 100 copies created and produced by its designer Roger Cormier back in 1968. It was available by mail order only. It is one of the nicer condition examples you will come across. The original 12 page rule book was neatly highlighted with yellow felt tip maker (additional xerox copy included). It's all there: triangular range finders, clear range finder with guage, white, red, and blue counters, numerical shielding chart, instructions for the boarding battle chart, passing between adjacent ship chart, British Fleet Order of Appearance Card, Allied Fleet Order of Appearance Card, ship identification charts, cannonade result charts, time record cards. The unit counters are stored in the exact acrylic tray as it was originally shipped by Mr. Cormier. This copy appears to have been played very little. The mapboard is a color exact of the original vinyl map in appearance and dimensions. I'm reluctant to call it a copy, because it cannot be differentiated other than by the newer smell of its vinyl. In addition to the game's collectability, it plays very well, and is not too complex. The map, itself, could be nearly a $200.00 investment. For some, a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of board wargame history. The reserve on this item is set well below market value to protect my investment. Game will be shipped in two separate packages. The map will go out in an appropriately sized tube to protect your investment. I will cover cost of insurance. offer with confidence.
