This is the enemy – Colditz Castle.
Tall, grey, forbidding, it rises from atop 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.
Play as either the allied prisoners of war, gathering equipment and planning your escape, or as German prison guards, with absolute authority but limited numbers.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Major Pat Reid’s escape from Colditz Castle
during World War II, this is the definitive edition of an iconic game. Escape from Colditz been 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.
