In the 21st century, the United States unveiled a military defense system that completely changed global politics. Through a series of satellites and powerful lasers, the U.S. gained a flawless defense against intercontinental missile attacks. The rest of the world feared that this defensive network might be used to launch an attack, and they united to demand that the U.S. dismantle it. A lengthy diplomatic stalemate gripped the globe. With the world at a crossroads, coalitions of nations were formed unlike any that had ever existed before. A plan was devised to destroy this perceived technological threat through military action. It involved attacking from three directions at once, for the nations of the world knew that every army dreads fighting a war on two fronts... and America was about to face three!
Fortress America, a board game of strategy and survival, imagines a not-too-distant future in which war has once again encircled the globe. This updated version of the 1986 classic features beautifully crafted components (including over 300 detailed plastic figures), thrusting players into a frightening geopolitical scenario. Take on either the role of the United States, struggling to protect itself from foreign threats, or one or more of the invading armies, fighting battle after battle to acquire important territories.
