Idea for a new Avalon Hill game:

    ISIS & ALLIES
    A Modern Take On A Classic Board Game!

    Extremists threaten the globe!
    Lead the coalition forces of Iraq, Syria, the Peshmerga, and Hezbollah into battle!
    Or rally foreign fighters to join the cause of Islamic State!
    As the coalition, order US airstrikes.
    As ISIS, win the war on the internet to radicalize the West.

    Change the course of history… as it’s being made!

    What do think? It could happen, right?

    Anything can translate into a board game, but sometimes you just gotta wait a few years while things blow over, and this idea might be one of those times.

    Obviously, in real life this would have to be done way after the events, to avoid it being called pro-ISIS or offending ISIS or anything. It’s one thing to make board games featuring Nazis or Soviets, another to make one featuring terrorist groups. You’d have to do it carefully.

    Will it be made? Probably not. Could it? Yes.

    Nazis, Soviets, terrorist groups. Not a whole lot of difference. 🙂

    The difference is there aren’t many Nazis and Soviets around these days. Terrorists, however…

    I’m not censoring anything for those douche bags…both Daesh or the PC crowd. F*ck em!

    Don’t worry though, it won’t be long before US combat soldiers find their way back over there going “weapons free”. If that happens, the game wouldn’t be terribly interesting since it would be unbalanced and a seperate game dedicated to counter insurgency and wide area security probably wouldn’t sell too well either.
