“Then you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. But don’t be alarmed. For this must take place, but it does not mean the end is already here.”

– Matthew 24:6

The First Jihad is a solitaire board game by award-winning designers Ben Madison (Jeff Davis, Margaret Thatcher's War, Nubia, Gorbachev,

N: The Napoleonic Wars, The White Tribe, and more) and Wes Erni, simulating the rise of the first Arab Caliphate, which spread the new religion of Islam across wide areas of the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. The player controls the forces of fourteen empires and kingdoms against the invading Arab (Muslim) armies, with the aim of pushing these invaders back before they are successful in driving all the player’s armies to the edges of the world and converting his populations to Islam.
