The Battle of Aqbat al-Bakr is a small and simple postcard game published as a freebie by SNAFU Design, as a gift for attendees to the Pax Ludica 2022 Wargaming convention (Cadis, Spain). It's the fourth of the Snafu Postcard Games.
It's a 2-player game depicting a small battle during the civil war in the Caliphate of Cordoba in 1010 AD. Some Christian Catalan counts joined forces with one of the Muslim candidates (Muhammad al-Mahdi) and fought against the other candidate to the caliphate, Sulaiman al-Mustain, backed by berber (imazighen) troops.
On his turn the player rolls two dice and the results are the number of Movement Points (one die) and the number of Combat Points (the other die). Then the player assigns these points among his units as he sees fit to move, rally, fight, charge (heavy units) and/or harass (light units). The first one to disorganize or kill all enemy units wins.
