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.
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.
That’s all three big battles in the show (Blackwater, The Wall & Bastardbowl) decided by a third army showing up in the nick of time and saving a losing force from being wiped out.
Jon Zombie Snow is a truly woeful military commander, why do people follow him? Sansa should be proclaimed Queen in the North and marry Sweetrobin.
Why didn’t Ramsey have scouts looking out for the Vale army (or any other reinforcements)?
Where was the Bolton cavalry (and archers) when the Vale Knights attacked?
Why didn’t Sansa tell Ramsey the Eagles were coming; she could have negotiated a deal where they got Rickon back alive and Ramsey slunk back to the Dreadfort.
The Maesters will have to cook something up to take out the dragons next season.
All though I loved Ender’s Game I found all the other books in that seires to be extrmely boring and I wasn’t able to finish any of them.
On the other hand I loved Ender Shadow and Ive read all the Shadow books which I also love. I like how after battle school the Shadow books focus on Earth politics and what the future geopoliticals is like. Plus Enders Shadow is longer so it’s a better deal.
Since the rule has been made noone has flipped the table… Yet.
It was flipped once after turn 3 of are second game of global.
I was Italy and taking over a poorly played Japan from a friend who had to go. The Allies were going really hard on the Pacific and after my turn 3 which was extremely good especially with dice rolls. They took there turns and flipped the table as they saw the writing on the wall. That is why the rule was in place.
