The Game Dos de Mayo is an abstract game of the terrible incidents that took place in Madrid on May 2nd 1808. On that date, civilians in Madrid and a few Spanish army units rebelled against the French occupation troops of Napoleon.

Dos de Mayo is a bilingual (English and Spanish) boardgame for two players, in which each player controls the forces of one side, either Spanish or French. The game lasts 10 turns and takes about 20-30 minutes to play.

At the end of Turn 10, the French player achieves victory if all the Spanish forces have been eliminated, all the access areas to Madrid are French garrisoned and has not lost four or more cubes. If a French victory does not apply, the Spanish player wins.
