Description Edit | History

From the back of the book:

Melee (MicroGame 3)
"Components include: Rule booklet * 8½" x 14" arena map * 68 counters for men, beasts, and monsters.

MELEE is a game of man-to-man combat with archaic weapons. Each counter represents a single warrior, with his own individually determined strength and dexterity. Players choose weapons and tactics for their fighters, and send them into combat against men, beasts, or monsters... to victory or death.
MELEE is part of The Fantasy Trip, Metagaming's new fantasy role-playing system. It can be used as a combat system for any other fantasy game — or you can play out individual combats for their own sake.
MELEE takes swordplay out of the books and onto the gameboard. Choose your weapons; don your armor. The MELEE is about to begin..."

Note that Steve Jackson has regained rights to this game and is publishing a new version. Information can be found here...
