(with apologies to Steinbeck)

As we already have lists for Egypt and Sub-Saharan Africa, what about the long, often deserted littoral that is west of Egypt? How have its various historical realities been viewed through the prism of games?

Tactical wargames covering battles involving Carthage, but NOT during the Punic Wars!

Great Battles of Alexander Deluxe module. A reminder that Carthage had a history before the Punic Wars.

A tremendously popular card-driven game, sadly out of print and expensive on eBay. Everyone's waiting for a reprint.

The Punic Wars (of course).

The original Desert Fox is noted below, but only reaches to Cyrenaica. The new version has maps which reach Algiers, and boxes which reach Morocco.

Of course, it appears in Mare Nostrum, as far West as Carthage. The expansion adds in Algeria and Morroco though.

Great game. Not historically accurate.

Jugurtha, as anyone who has read Colleen McCullough's Roman novels knows, was the upstart Numidian leader who collided with his erstwhile Roman allies.

After this it's onto World War II where apparently this theater and its unique features -- the challenge of the desert, the small forces in a larger area, the size of the theater and popular antagonists (both had nicknames) like Monty and the Desert Fox -- combined to inspire a new title every few years or so, sometimes multiple titles in a single year.

Moving rather quickly again to the Pre-Modern period:

The battles of the Saharan Tuareg (singular Targui) tribes conducted with shields, swords, spears, lances, daggers and rifles.
