Gulf of Aden, late 1800s. A British officer is on his way from India to his new post at Aden, where he is also to be married. The journey becomes somewhat dicey, and chance can affect your options. The gameplay is not difficult and it’s a small map so it plays quickly, but there are some OK design tricks and it’s a pretty fair story.
My apologies to John Steinbeck for mongrelizing the title and core plot of his great book and for stealing the characters’ names. Comments welcome. OldGrex.
