Global Thermonuclear War

The Cold War has never been this much fun!
Global Thermonuclear War is a Cold War themed game about building resources, creating uneasy alliances, pitting your allies against one another, collecting massive arsenals of missiles, and emerging as the only world super-power!

This is not easily accomplished as you will have to manipulate and repress your opponents while avoiding a global collapse through overpopulation or a nuclear apocalypse.

The rules and mechanics are easy to follow and use, but provide enough depth for endless strategy. You will soon find yourself wheeling and dealing across the game table.
