Fitna: Global War in the Middle East is a 2-6 players card-driven wargame depicting the military confrontations in the Middle East since 2012, up to the near future. Among 11 historical and hypothetical scenarios (from 2 to 6 hours of play), players can simulate the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Kurdish Rebellion, and other possible scenarios set in the region. ISIS troops are activated through Event cards.
Each turn represents two months of real time and is divided into several phases allowing players to play events, issue reinforcements, to check supply, to spend operational points, to move units, and to launch offensives. Each player gets 4 cards in hand allowing him or her to use them for either creating events, spending operational points, or supporting battles. The A1 map represents all the countries present in the Middle East (from Turkey to Saudi Arabia). Fitna (meaning "schism" in Arabic) includes many new rules, assets and events characteristic of current wars in this region and an International Tension track simulating the growing tension in the region leading to the arrival of American and more Russian military forces.
