I was curious if there is a board wargame that deals with the strategy of pulling out of an armed conflict. Considering what the U.S. is dealing with in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, I think it would be interesting, not to mention enlightening to people on all sides of the issue of U.S. military involvement in those wars.

Thanks!

Jim

Do you mean literally getting out alive, or the social and economic aspects of leaving a conflict?

Two of the COIN games "A Distant Plain" and "Fire In the Lake" both have a faction that part of the goal is to have their forces pulled out of the country.

Any game on Vietnam will have this feature eventually (and most have a US withdrawal scenario).

No Trumpets no Drums has a nice one starting on '68.

I was thinking more of the strategic aspects of how the pullout of an army affects the battle situation. There has been a lot of discussion about whether and how the U.S. should pull out of Iraq. I'd be interested in seeing a game that supposes, OK, we do a total pullout over the next year: how does that affect our allies' chance of winning, or surviving?

No Trumpets no Drums covers that, that is the point. Trying to win whilst instigating "vietnimization". The scenario ends in '72.

Can the RSV hold out whilst the US pulls out.

You can simulate it yourself.

Take a D-Day war game and halfway retreat the American forces. See how the other allies hold out.

Have you looked at Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001 – ?? It also just got an expansion a few months ago that covers more recent developments.
