Golan 73

Yesterday saw an introductory game of the GMT Golan 73.

We worked our way through the first couple of turns to get a feel for the game mechanics. The verdict, I think we will play the game again 👍.

The initial set up on the map.

The 🇮🇱 forces are on the blue wooden block, the 🇸🇾 on the green.

The onslaught begins....

The game mechanics allow the assignment of assets to larger formations, and the playing of 'historical events' to influence the course of the battle.

By the end of the first day, the 🇸🇾 forces had broken the 🇮🇱 front line and it became a mission of fire fighting.

Here you can see the 🇸🇾 artillery assets assigned to an assault, and some defensive minefields placed by the 🇮🇱 army.

A quick taste of the game - run through in slow time so we could both get used to the new rules. I recommend the game 👍


  1. Very interesting - I like GMT's stuff. I've been running through Cuba Libre in the past few weeks, using the solo rules in that game. http://midasintelligence.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/cuba-libre-solo-play-through-part-1.html
