Fardh al-Qanoon simulation, version 1.1

Fardh al-Qanoon Map

Fardh al-Qanoon Map

I’ve made some tweaks to my rules for Fardh al-Qanoon. The updated rules are available on Scribd, while the Map and Counter Sheet are available for download as usual. A changelog can be found at the end of this post, with my design notes available here.

Now that I’ve submitted a version of my simulation for my course, my plan moving forward is to create a separate version of Fardh al-Qanoon not bound to the original assignment’s parameters. Future versions will include more playable factions and, hopefully, a more accurate representation of the insurgency.

    Dear Robert,

    Excellent work here! Very interested in the way you built this COIN game around manpower and control of regions.

    What software did you use to build the map on? Very cleanly done!
