Random Friday Wargaming: Persian Gulf: Battle for the Middle East

It wasn't just part of the great GDW "Third World War" series, but a great game in its own right. Persian Gulf: Battle for the Middle East was actually pretty good for modding into any one of a variety of potential or actual MidEast crises over the years.

There's that great GDW collage cover art again.

CSW has a discussion board for the entire series.

This one seems to be the hardest to find, and the most interesting.

I'm surprised no one has republished this series. Who owns the rights?

Brian Train said...

That would be the central question. Frank Chadwick is credited with the design. I recall reading somewhere that when GDW folded the rights to the games reverted to the designers, but I could be wrong.
Anyway, Frank Chadwick would be the one to ask. He might be loth to do it because he would feel the need to update it to reflect the last 20 years of fun n' games in the putative theatres of combat.
