Great game design makes the complex simple, replayability maximum, and abstraction credible.

It’s not how well you roll that counts but how well the dice suit the game.

Those looking for thematic material to support FAB Golan, may be interested in the following:

1. A relatively new book at Amazon called “Inside Israel’s Northern Command” published 2016 taking an in-depth look at the Golan Campaign, through logistics, tactics, and even Israeli bravery award recipients with citations.



Does that cover look familiar
TIP: It’s currently out of stock at Amazon USA but in stock at Amazon UK.
BETTER TIP: Search Amazon for the book “Syrians at the Border” and you’ll find this exact title published in 2014 for Kindle and only $5.15 versus $34.56. Can’t vouch for the maps which have tiny print in the book as it is.

2. For music there’s one song that typified the Israeli 1973 war called “Lo Yehi” or “Lu Yehi” which translates as “Let it Be”. Combine this with songs like Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (the original) from the Six Day War - translated as “Jerusalem of Gold” and “Evenu Shalom” - “We Brought You Peace” - and you have the start of a good playlist. Apple just put up an album called “Marches of the Israel Defense Forces” too. Very Sousa.

3. For visuals try the war’s official Israeli documentary “War on Yom Kippur” made shortly after the action by the Israeli government in conjunction with the IDF. It only runs 30 minutes but for period flavour it’s full.

Yep! I posted that too on the CSW forum. Very, very good. Thanks for reminding me.
