Across Suez: The Battle of the Chinese Farm October 15, 1973
Across Suez is an operational level simulation of the Battle of Chinese Farm, 15 October 1973. The Israeli high command planned to cross the Suez Canal in order to isolate the Egyptian Third Army, but two Egyptian divisions threatened to block the Israeli counteroffensive. Across Suez is a relatively simple, yet challenging recreation of the wildest and most important battle of the October War. Such elements as surprise and shock of first combat, combined arms combat, Canal crossing, as well as artillery bombardment and support have been captured in a game system that is easily grasped and yet allows subtle strategic decisions on both sides. Across Suez contains an 11" x 17" map of the area around Chinese Farm in the Sinai, 100 cardboard playing pieces, rules booklet, and various playing aids.
