Description of Knights of the Desert

"An operational simulation of Rommel's Desert Campaigns in North Africa during World War II, Knight of the Desert was one of the first games to offer multiple stacking in the same hex.

Slow and ponderous, its re-creation of the African Campaign did not deliver its potential. Long a mainstay of board wargaming, [unit stacking was also] first implemented here, albeit in a clumsy fashion." [excerpt from M. Evan Brooks' Homepage]
