I'm trying to find a board game which I knew when I was a kid. Nobody let me play it.
It's played in the Middle East. It has oil pipelines to link territories, oil tanker ships, perhaps an oil drill, dictator (a hand), artillery (tank), a head piece (sorry I don't remember what it is), and if I'm not wrong it has a king and a warrior or spy too. I don't remember if it had money, dice, etc.
The objective, if I remember correctly, was to gain power, economy control, etc. It has some similarities to Risk and Diplomacy.
