Description

This game simulates the British war effort in Libya, Egypt, and the Eastern Mediterranean. The game uses deck builder mechanics, which is appropriate because Commonwealth forces needed to build an army that could stop Rommel and the Afrika Korps from scratch. Finding a way to get tanks, infantry, artillery, Englishmen, Australians, Frenchmen, and Indians to work together was a major undertaking. It took the Germans the better part of a decade to figure all of this out. The British pulled it off in two years. Intelligence plays a big part in this game: there are ways to see what your opponent will do, and knowing this gives you a big advantage. Good luck!
