Designed by Dennis L. Bishop, The Last King of Scotland is a game that simulates the Tanzania-Uganda War of 1979 that ousted Uganda's President for Life Idi Amin Dada. With a seeming fascination for all things Scottish, Idi Amin referred to himself as the "uncrowned king of Scotland". When Amin fled Uganda in a sense he became "The Last King of Scotland." Each game turn is a month of real time. Each hex covers 30 miles, and units range from platoons to battalions. Map work by Richard A. Dengel and counters by Tom Cundiff.
