This is probably the single biggest ripoff I can recall in 35 years of gaming (another 3W publication - big surprise!laugh) - not the game, but a supplement to it.

This game was rushed into publication in Strategy & Tactics in the fall of 1990, during the buildup to the Kuwait War. At the time I was glad to get it in my subscription.

The next issue of S&T advertised a supplement with political rules and introductory rules, for $8 (probably about $16 today). So sent in my money for the thing, and when I got it it was just a flimsy little magazine insert with rules and errata and nothing else. I was so disgusted I sent it back for a refund.

It was just as well, since these rules were included in the expanded version of the game 3W published the following year for $25, a bit more reasonable for two maps, three counter sheets, and an 84-page booklet.

[q="game description"]Arabian Nightmare : The Kuwait War (ANKW) was designed and published while the late 1990 events in Kuwait were still unfolding, so in effect it was a near-future game which became an historical game within a few months.

The game has one map and 300 counters. The map covers the Persian Gulf, Saudi Arabia, the eastern part of Iraq and its border with Iran. Scale is 1-3 per Military Action Segment and 4-6 days per Political Action Segment (a full turn is 2 MAS and 1 PAS, so 6-12 days total). Units are ranging from battalions to corps, naval squadrons and air wings.

The game may be played using only the Military rules, the Political rules or both sets. There is an Introductory Game as well. There are 7 scenarios including the full campaign.

An expansion kit for ANKW called Desert Sword was published separately in 1991, adding a new map covering the western part of the Middle East to the shores of the Mediterranean plus 200 counters. The kit includes the historical Coalition offensive vs. Iraq.

Smaller nations sometimes form federations, and operate as a single entity. This allows them to compete with larger nations in various global markets. The United Arab Emirates is perhaps one of the most notable today.

This is yet another great wargame about the first gulf war. It has both a combat and political phase, each of which can be played independent of the other. Alas, it too is out of print, but fairly easily found on ebay or here at BGG. It'll keep you busy, and is definitely a challenge!

Desert Sword: Arabian Nightmare. Adds more up-to-date rules, a second mapsheet, and rules for a larger-scale game.

Both are mint, unpunched, and will be in the same ziplock bag.

I will pay the first $6 shipping to any address, worldwide. This will fit in a USPS Flat Rate Envelope.

It's tough to design a good, historical simulation right on the heels of the actual, historical event. This game tries to do so, simulating the occupation (and subsequent liberation) of Kuwait.

I also own Desert Sword: Arabian Nightmare, which adds a map of western Iraq.

By A. Davis, James Dunnigan, and Austin Bay, 1990, 3W wargames

I really can't say enough good things about this game. If you compare this to "Back to Iraq" or "Oil War", this one is better by a landslide. The rulebook is pretty solid, the components are about standard, and the game itself is good. It has lots of scenarios and a pre-game that sets the situation for the war up (including available forces, which depend on the allies available).

Here is a review:
