Scales: abstract in terms of time, troops and space. All the action took
place inside a single large city (Montevideo, the capital city) over the length

an indeterminate period of time, and the counters represent units from
individual or "fighting cell" up to battalions of police and army troops.
Components: Plastic pouch, rules, charts, 100 counters (non mounted), two 8.5 "x 11" maps.
