2 de Mayo
Dos de Mayo is based on the terrible events that took place in Madrid on May 2nd 1808. On that date, fed up with the abuse by French soldiers and sick of the indolence of Spanish authorities, many of whom acted in collusion with the occupying French troops, the people of the city rose up in arms against the best army of the time, in a desperate attempt to regain their pride through rebellion against the Napoleonic invader. Dos de Mayo is a board game for two players, lasting around 20-30 minutes (even less for experienced players), in which each player controls the forces of one side, either Spanish or French. The rulebook includes historical commentaries and an example of a full game.
