Great game... a lot of fun. Amazing how some of these old classics rival or match anything newer.

Really nice game. Three distinct phases of the game pose three distinct challenges. Although it may appear that the game should fall into a predictable pattern, the reality is that there are enough setbacks that every turn is a near run thing.

Excellent game. Teaches you the importance of combined arms, and coordinated attacks. Clever way of making a map to. The map locks together like a giant 6 piece simple jigsaw puzzle. I have the Mayfair game as well as Todd Davis's DTP remake. Cool Stuff Unlimited does an excellent job with their productions. I have all of the CSU remakes and IMO they are the GMT of DTP. When put together right, they are as good or better than any game on the market. Neither game is for trade nor sale.

The mechanics to this one are very interesting in how they work together for the overall game play effects from combat to the goals of the players.

One of my favorite games. Biased a bit to the Arabs, but still a lot of fun. Lot's of period "feel".

Inherited this from a friend who has since passed on. Played with him long time ago. Remember we had some rules problems ...but managed to agree on some house rules. Very enjoyable.

Interesting game mechanics for a title set in the Israeli War of Independance. The fight as long as you win and have movement points mechanism makes the Jewish forces have to put together their strongest force possible to push down and open a road to the city proper. The Arab commander has to simply keep strong points in place, or else slip back in and cut the roads. The additional effort of building a new road into Jerusalem is present, and each turn brings a new series of fights to get a secure path through. A lot of fun, even solitaire.

A good example of John Hill's cleverness as a designer. The sequence of play, broken down to operations, was far ahead of its time.

A herterogenous rating as its really an 8 with problems, mainly an ambiguous rulebook. Enormous appeal based on combat units some of which became become hobby legends. From the unbalanced & not particularly competent Jewish terrorists of the Irgun and Stern Gang, to artillery recommissioned from atop Turkish war memorials, the Leaky Flamethrower on its halftrack, and El Kuttub the mad bomber, this game presented poorly-funded all-out war.

Pretty straightforward game with reasonably understandable rules. Maybe a little long for todays gamer but all in all not a bad effort.

Very innovative game for the time with a push-your-luck mechanism for attacks. Can produce some real see-saw games.
I've lost the hex-and-counter habit so this game probably won't get played again.

Nice simulation and game (you can always count on a John Hill design) that's not decided until the last turn. Beware of the "luck" factor - but that's what makes it more interesting.

Wargame with unusual subject matter (makes a change from not-another-WWII-or-Napoleonic wargames) and mercifully short-ish playing time.

I picked this game up in a discount bin in Stockton, California more than twenty years ago. I lost it shortly after. My impression then was that the game was complex.

This appears to be complete (there are actually quite a few more counters than are actually listed on game box). Box has shelfwear and some dishing. Game has received a good amount of play, but materials in good condition.
