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.

The four conflicts include:
  • 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.

A complete game of Brief Border Wars include:
  • Four maps at 17" x 22"
  • One countersheet
  • One Player Aid Card
  • One deck of 54 cards
  • One System Rules booklet
  • Four Exclusive Rules booklets
  • Two 6-sided dice
