AGAINST THE ODDS 2017 ANNUAL: Six Days of War
Wargame covers the 1967 war between Israel and an Arab coalition. The game begins
with a Strategic Segment of card play and counter-play as each side adjusts its
diplomatic standing and 'war footing' and shifts unit positions on the map. Random
Events can vary from nothing important to forced actions, including withdrawal of UN
peacekeepers, Jordan declaring war, and other events to the benefit of one player or
another...or perhaps neither player will like.
Eventually the war will break out and players will have to jockey for initiative
and conduct combat operations, all while knowing the UN could call for a cease-fire
at any time. Medium complexity and playing time of up to three to four hours.
Also includes a historically based scenario that makes for a faster beginning
(no preliminary card play) and serves as an excellent solo game.
Components: One full color 22x34-inch mapsheet, 288 full-color die-cut counters,
66 cards, 20 pages of rules, and two pages of charts and tables.
Also comes with a magazine full of historical articles.
