According to Foreign Policy's Michael Peck, war-game designer Paul Rohrbaugh has created a board game based on the recent confrontation between Israel and Hamas, called A Reign of Missiles. FP conveniently provides PDF files of the rules and maps so you can try it yourself.
"A Reign of Missiles" is a simple game in which the player steps into the shoes of the Israeli military command as it tries to stop Hamas rockets from striking Israeli cities. The player controls Israeli air, ground, and naval forces, as well as the Iron Dome missile defense system, while the game itself uses dice rolls to control Hamas forces. Winning the game means suppressing Hamas' rocket capabilities, but applying too much force will draw international condemnation and cost Israel the game. It's a narrow balancing act for the Israelis in "A Reign of Missiles," which is based on Paul's earlier game on the German V-1 buzz bomb offensive against England in 1944.
