From the “Foundation for the Defense of Democracies” (how’s that for a caption on your business card), a paper on the likelihood and implications of a third engagement between Israel and Hezbollah, taking into account the effects of the Syrian Civil War, the Iranian nuclear deal and Russian engagement in the area – all things that hadn’t happened when I designed my Third Lebanon War game.

[ETA: Here are two other pieces by David Daoud, one of the authors of the above paper, on the possible look of a third Lebanon war, published in September 2016. The first one is long but quite interesting.

Anyway, the game is still playable as it is, since it focuses on the situation in southern Lebanon and not on the lead-up to actual operations. It’s quite adaptable, so have a read of the paper and download the game if you like – still free – and change some of the rules as you see fit; for example simply leaving the Syrian forces and intervention out, or accounting for the possible use of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system against IDF aircraft by strengthening optional rule O3.3, and so forth.
