East Battles game system is an
operational level simulation of mid-20th century warfare in and near
the Sinai Peninsula. Both games in the system represent, in two-player format,
a clash between two or more of the important military powers in the region
during the middle third of that century. The playing pieces represent the
actual units that participated, or could have participated, in those battles,
and the maps show the militarily significant terrain over which the units
fought or could have fought.
Suez '56 simulates the Anglo-French invasion
