A Blood-Red Banner is a solitaire Battlesson siege game where you, as the Texian heroes of 1836, must survive the attacks from the relentless Mexican army and save the walls of the Alamo. Designed by Richard Trevino, this historically-based game is easy and fast-paced, providing the air of challenge that occurred between both armies all those years ago.
As the besieged Texian defenders fighting for a new republic, you must fight off the five converging Mexican attack columns. Direct brave counterattacks, pushing back the troops of the Mexican dictator, General Santa Anna, before they storm the walls and cut into the heart of the Alamo.
Do you have what it takes to withstand the siege? Defend the Alamo and wave your flag of victory in A Blood-Red Banner!
