Next War...whats next
« on: May 10, 2018, 07:54:29 AM »
Anyone hear what might be the next game in the Next War series?

I'm hoping Israel vs Iran/Russia/Lebanon/Syria, maybe even get Egypt, Turkey, Jordan involved.

China vs. the USSR Russia would be a good one.

I've heard from some fairly reliable inside folks that GMT wants no part of a modern/current-events Israel game and the notoriety that would come w/ it in any mainstream press

Maybe there's some exaggeration there, but I can't think of any GMT MidEast game that wasn't a conflict at least 40 years past.

Notoriety or concern about the press has no bearing on it.

That particular situation is too fluid with no rules in the system currently sufficiently developed to cover non-state actors.

That *may* change with Supplement #2 which will contain rules handling insurgents, insurgency, and COIN.

The next full game is in very preliminary stages, i.e., map and OOB research to ascertain viability. It's likely a go, but we want to be sure before pulling the trigger.
