We've recently been restocking a number of great board games that we haven't had around in a while. Amongst those is the GMT Games Twilight Struggle: The Cold War 1945-1989.

History buffs ought to have a lot of fun with this two-player game designed to simulate the global power struggle between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. that defined so much of the last half of the 20th Century.




This game comes highly reviewed from BoardGameGeek and has won numerous International Gaming Awards.

From the box:
"Twilight Struggle inherits its fundamental systems from the card-driven classics We the People and Hannibal. It is a quick-playing, low-complexity game in that tradition. The game map is a world map of the period, whereon players move units and exert influence in attempts to gain allies and control for their superpower.

Twilight Struggle's Event cards add detail and flavor to the game. They cover a vast array of historical happenings: the Arab-Israeli conflicts, Vietnam conflict, the peace movement, the Cuban Missle Crisis, and other such incidents that brought the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation. Subsystems capture the prestige-laden Space Race as well as nuclear tensions with the possibility of game-ending nuclear war. Can you, as the U.S. President or Soviet Premier, lead your forces to victory?"


Here's a link to a couple of reviews for the game and the boardgamegeek page on Twilight Struggle.
