A Spoiled Victory is a solitaire game designed by Paul Fish and Hermann Luttmann that challenges the player with making decisions similar to what the British command was required to make during the evacuation at Dunkirk in May-June of 1940. Points are allocated each turn for defense of the perimeter, creation of evacuee units, and moving evacuees from the beaches to the safety of England. You cannot save them all, so you must pick who will stay and fight and who will escape to fight another day. The level of victory or defeat is measured by the number of troops and the amount of equipment that is saved through evacuation. See the Boardgaming Life review of the game.
A Spoiled Victory is available in boxed, folio (poly-bag) and downloaded PnP formats.Use the drop-down menu below to order the game using PayPal. Menu prices include shipping and handling.

"I’m enjoying your games. Just finished my first game of A Spolied Victory, Dunkirk 1940. I scored 39 points. I’m sure I played incorrectly here and there. But certainly got the hang of it. It’s a fun game." - Joe L.
