This is the enemy--Colditz Castle. Tall, grey, forbidding, it rises out of the cliff face, an impregnable fortress. During World War I, Colditz was a prisoner-of-war camp from which no one escaped.
This is World War II. Now you must attempt to Escape from Colditz. Play as allied prisoners of war, gathering equipment and planning your escape. Play as German prison guards, with absolute authority but limited numbers.

Escape from Colditzbeen given a complete visual overhaul from renowned World War II artist Peter Dennis. Designed by Major Reid himself, the rules have been updated in consultation with co-designer Brian Degas.
