Using the same system as Europe in Turmoil, this game tackles the Cold War. Richard and I started the game on Tuesday and got carried away staging coups in Egypt only to discover this raised the Defcon tension and precipiated Nuclear War and end of the game. Being gentlemen we didn't apportion blame for causing the Nuclear War and with the planet now destroyed there seemed little point. In the future cockroach scholars are sure to debate the origns of life on the planet, once they have evolved sufficently. The smart money is on a lot of big bangs.
Excellent game, looking forward to next session.
