This is a surprising gem. It is a strategic game with some basic rules and lots of chrome. It lends itself to 2 , 3 or 4 players since there are 2 Maps and 2 separate fronts. I bought it at WBC last summer and finally got a chance to put it on the table. Lots of die rolling since each unit rolls separately for combat. I plan on setting it up at Prezcon this summer if you want to play multiplayer contact me on boardgame geek.

I would probably rate it 8 stars. I rate Bar Lev it's closest competitor 8.5 stars.

Dennis this is wonderful to hear. DG seems to be knocking it out of the park here of late with their magazine games.

Any insight on how it is solo? Also can you play just one map/front at a time?

Thanks!

I would like to pick this one up but I haven't heard anything about how it plays, solitaire suitability, playing time, etc? No real information on it by players.

Posted on the CSW folder, no activity since 2017 but here's to hoping. Might as well start a thread here too and see if anyone is subscribed.

Per Joe Youst on CSW:
Quote:
Yes, you could play just one front. Look up the historical OB for the Sinai, and adhere to those appearance dates for reinforcements and airpower.


Good news indeed!

Glad you like it. I put a lot of work redeveloping this one after play testing it before publication. It's a tough game for either side to win and there are now a lot of nuances to playing the game efficiently.
