Description

Twilight Struggle is a two-player game simulating the forty-five year dance of intrigue, prestige, and occasional flares of warfare between the Soviet Union and the United States.

Using the card-driven game mechanics pioneered in such award winning games as We the People and Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage, Twilight Struggle recreates the conflict between the most powerful nation states the world has ever known. The scope of the game covers the entire world as it was found in 1945. Players move units and exert influence in attempts to gain allies and control for their superpower.

As with GMT's other card-driven games, decision-making is a challenge; how to best use one's cards and units given consistently limited resources? Twilight Struggle's Event cards add cover a vast array of historical happenings, from the Berlin Airlift, to the Vietnam War and the U.S. peace movement, to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Just what I was looking for to add to my collection. Thanks again Athena for the help.

Best for detail.

Good brush for those detailed drybrush moments. Has a tendency to fray a bit and beware overloading it too. Marked it down a star as I think it would be better as a ‘lightbulb’ shaped brush fit even greater control. Overall can’t complain though.

Perfect family game

We've owned this game for a while and played many times with our kids (age 5, 9 and 11) bought again recently from Athena games for cousins for Christmas.
Box says 8 plus but the 5 year old has grasped it well and plays by herself now rather than in a team with an adult. We're fussy about our board games, they need to have replayability, have lots of interesting elements and be fun for adults and children - this ticks all the boxes. It has some elements of strategy and some elements of luck. A perfect pre-cursor to games like Catan, highly recommend.
