Brief Border Wars
Publisher/Brand: Compass Games
Product Code: CMP1102
Brief Border Wars is a quadrigame or set of four mini-games on short border conflicts of the 20th and 21st century, using a card-driven system that models the chaotic, stop-and-start nature of these impromptu wars.
- El Salvador vs. Honduras, 1969 (also known as "The Football War")
- The Turkish invasion of Cyprus, 1974
- China vs. Vietnam, 1979
- Israel vs. Hezbollah, southern Lebanon, 2006
El Salvador vs. Honduras is one of history’s shortest wars, clocking in at about 100 hours; the Turkish player in the Cyprus game must establish and exploit from a beachhead; the Chinese player in the Vietnam game must contend with determined guerrillas and a fatal division of effort between two non-communicating fronts; and the Israeli player in the Lebanon game must seek out and destroy the Hezbollah rocket and missile units raining destruction on the homeland.
