Sinai SNAFU - October 31, 1956


ISRAEL - Anxiously behind schedule, mobile elements of the "Israeli Defense Force" (IDF) have been stalled by unexpectedly stiff Egyptian resistance at the natural fortress of Abu Agiela. It's already Wednesday, and Sharon's Paratroopers have been at Mitla Pass for days without relief. As Colonel Wallach or Colonel Goder Player A must attempt a desperate assault to break the Egytians quickly, or Moesha Dayan may sack you too! EGYPT - Your army has had years to fortify Umm Qatef. Your men are well trained and eager to prove themselves. If you stop the Israeli invasion they will earn the respect of the entire Arab world.

TERRAIN SUGGESTIONS:
"Mixed" Desert with one good road running East-toSouthwest. The "Ruafa Dam" may be crossed as if it were a bridge. Abu-Ageila is "Light" Buildings. All water on the map is impassable terrain.

SCENARIO LENGTH: 20 TURNS VICTORY CONDITIONS:


Both sides: Be the only player occupying "Umm Qatef" at the end of turn 20.
