Are folks here familiar with this old computer game from SSI – an excellent and complex grand tactical simulation.

I was just reading it's rules and I like the movement penalty rules which limit how much elements can deviate from the objective assigned to their division

Also the allocation of operation points to commanders and units that dictates how much a unit can move at all, being affected negatively by objectives being changed to often in a battle are concepts I like

Are there any rulesets that come close to the rules for the SSI title? I wonder whether they based it on any existing rules from time of the titles release (late 80s)

That sounds like some of the rules and concepts used in Shako.

Here is a link with more info from BGG.

Here is my summary of Shako's mechanics:


Et Sans Resultat uses divisional objectives and requires you move full speed toward them so no monkey business there.
