(from MMP website:)
Shifting Sands is a point-to-point movement, card driven game based on the World War II African campaigns of 1940-1943. From the first Italian attempts to cross "The Wire" through the Torch invasion, all aspects of the campaign for North Africa are covered including the Abyssinian Campaign of 1940-1941. Like the commanders of the day, you'll need to try and achieve your goals while events in other theaters influence your ability to maintain any semblance of a plan.
