History and development

Tactical Assault Group was available for play in 1987.[1] It was a closed-ended, computer-moderated, strategy play-by-mail game.[1][2] It allowed 20–60 players to negotiate a seven-story building during gameplay.[2]


Tactical Assault Group was set in the future where players hunted opponents with the goal of being the lone survivor.[1] Players had to also avoid assassins.[3]


David Webber, the editor of Paper Mayhem, reviewed the article in a 1987 issue of the magazine. He stated that it was a simple as well as a "good and challenging game".[3]
