Description of A Line in The Sand

"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)." [excerpt from M. Evan Brooks' Homepage]

I agree with SZYMON, I think the game is copy protected, it asks for a word from the manual. However, you can enter anything and it will take you to the next screen, but then you can't get past that screen. Nothing works. That could still be a copy protection, or it could be the game just doesn't work.

Got this game in a batch of old DOS games from my nephew. Not a bad Gulf War strategy simulation game, but very hard to win some of the scenarios.
