2 Minutes to Midnight is a fresh design exploring the cold war in 5-year turns starting in 1946 and running for 9 turns to 1990.

 

A game of influence, military, sabre-rattling, global trade, embargoes, technology, Soviet reforms, spies, and coups.

 

Play out the whole of the Cold War for one or two players. 

  • Asymmetric Sides – USSR & USA each play differently.
  • Historical Focus – Extensively researched & details, but simple to play.
  • SOLO mode – Out-of-the-box solo play for quick-start solo goodness.
  • A Day’s Game - scenarios at 1, 2, 4, and 7 hours play time.

As the USA, can you force the collapse of the Soviet Union?

As the USSR, can you win the space race and spread communism?
