I prefer SCS games with low counter density. Looking at the pictures, and with only 280 counters, this seems to fit that description. Is this the case, that most spaces have just 1-2 counters that are fairly spaced across the board? Can anyone clarify please?

You'll like this one, Nathan. The Syrians start with about 60 units on the map, mostly in stacks of three. The IDF has about 25. Reinforcements come on for both sides, so after a few turns, the IDF may have 50 or so, the Syrians about the same.

It stays around there, both sides have 40-60 units on the map most turns. There's a lot of action and a lot of ebb-and-flow. The Syrians actually get a second wave of reinforcements about mid-game. The IDF gets a steady flow.
