I have this interesting little boxed game by Grenadier Models called Dwarf Mountain. It is number 7004. It is one of those games where you use cardboard chits to play on a map. Anyone have this game? I am almost positive it is complete but I'd like to make sure. Thanks!

Ah well, it seems no one knows anything about this thing. Off to eBay with it next week, although I am tempted to keep it. I really love the little counter-based games with foldouts maps and whatnot.

I could not find much on it. Not in the usual places I go to research these things...

Frank---

Here's some info from Terence Gunn's Fantastic Worlds of Grenadier:

Grenadier also released in 1980 a series of midi-games called the Great Little Games Line, which consisted of the games Seawolf, Journey, Dwarf Mountain, and Hydra.  Although these simple but durable and professionally-developed games---intended for fast-play at a low cost---could not compete with the higher-budget product of established war/board games companies such as Avalon Hill and SPI, the production and release of these games served to expand Grenadier's product line and increase its image as an attentive company open to trying out ideas.


I'll dig up my early Grenadier catalogs and newsletters to see if there's any other info in them.

edit 1:  they retailed for $5 each, and three of them were still available as of GB#8 (Journey wasn't), and were gone by the time GB#13 was published.

If you have a spare of Dwarf Mountain, I'd be happy to swap you a Hydra for it, Frank? :D
