Why this site ?
There is only few information available on International Team games on Internet. The company disappeared in the late 80's. It was a pioneer in the area of wargames, simulation games, boargames in Europe.
Interesting themes, simple rules, fast play. Sometime the translations were not easy to understand, the game not enough tested. The wargames were somehow far from an historic simulations. But in Europe, several players, beginners or not, kept good memory of these games.
I would like to include in this site:
- a tribute to the beautifulness of these games including the covers ( I especially like Rommel by Enea Riboldi: please take a look to the small details) and to the large panel of subjects from around 2000 BC (Troy's war) to year 2896 (Millenium)
- an information source for these games (including links to other sites)
- Some counters scan to help to rebuild incomplete games
- Some idea on the price (from Ebay)
Which language ?
I am French (nobody's perfect). I do not speak well German and I do not speak at all Italian. I build this site in English (as much as I can) and French. It is also partially in German and Italian, as I copied some information written on the games. If you identify any error, please E-Mail me so I can update the site.
Site future ?
I am step by step adding one page per game with some info. It will take time and this site will slowly grow during year 2005-2006. My basic information is coming from the games I have and this is today an incomplete collection.
You can help me
I am looking for any historical information (pictures, newspaper article etc) on International team company and people, especially during the early years.
I am looking for scans of articles on International Team games, from magazines published in Italy, USA, England, Germany etc

EBAY is still the easiest way to find International Team games
MARCO DONADONI created the International Team company, designed several games and is still a game designer. Please support him in buying Tuchulcha for instance here . He also has a web site.
ENEA RIBOLDI, who was the illustrator of most of the International Team wargames, just published a beautiful comic strip called "cap horn" in French. You can see the pictures on www.humano.com.
