A Line the Sand is a conversion of the board war game by TSR of the same name.
It depicts a variety of conflicts in the Middle East, including the Gulf War and hypothetical conflicts involving nations like Iran, Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Gameplay is turn-based, with each side being able to deploy a variety of land, air and sea units. Each side can be played by either a human or a computer player.
In addition to the basic mode, in which only military forces are used, there is also a diplomatic mode where players have to make a variety of diplomatic decisions in order to reach certain goals.
"A faithful adaptation of GDW's boardgame, this simulation was not an accurate representation of the Gulf War. More akin to a static line World War I battle, it did not prevent it from being entertaining, just from being accurate. Actually, the other scenarios involving potential flashpoints between Israel and the Arab nations were more interesting with their diplomatic and military options; however, the graphics were "utilitarian" (to put it charitably)."
