The Ambush! solitaire wargame system is designed to be easily learned, in order to get the player into the action within minutes. The player selects and arms his squad, providing each soldier with command and initiative ratings, perception, weapons skill, driving skill, and movement capability. After selecting one of the missions, the player sends his squad into a mission map to conduct operations called for in the mission. Soldiers move freely, as far as the player wishes, checking for events each time they move... until the sequenced action rounds are triggered by the whine of enemy bullets!
