Labyrinth: The War on Terror, 2001-?
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT1012-18
Labyrinth is a 1-2 player card-driven boardgame simulating at the strategic level the ongoing bid by Islamic extremists to impose their brand of religious rule on the Muslim world.
In a 1-player game, the player portrays the United States (US) and its allies battling the extremist jihad ("struggle", i.e., holy war).
In a 2-player game, the second player takes on the role of the Jihadist.
The US side seeks to improve governance in Muslim countries so that Jihadism is cut off at its roots, or at least to eliminate the extremist fighters that pose the immediate threat. The Jihadist side seeks to reestablish the Islamic Caliphate of old or to damage the US so severely that it withdraws from the Muslim world.
