Somewhere, over numerous house moves, I've lost my copy of Flat Top. It's one of the best games I've ever played, miniatures or board.

I'm assuming it's no longer available so does anyone know if anything similar is around now?

There are scads of these still floating around. Unpunched copies being obviously more expensive.

An outfit called has all the components of the game (including rules) on CD for less than a fiver. He usually has his stuff up on eBay.
