DescriptionIn Nuclear War you have to blow the opposition to smithereens - you have four opposing factions. You can either drop the bomb on them using a bomber, fire a missile, or try to lure their population using propaganda.
Ocassionally a random event occurs, for example aliens would land on one of the factions and the population suddenly grows, or someone throws cows at the opposition, causing a major stampede and killing millions.

TriviaThe game is loosely based on the Nuclear War and Nuclear Escalation card games, which are tongue-in-cheek games that make light of a serious (especially in the middle of the Cold War) topic. The games are still in print, and the series has been expanded by a third title, Nuclear Devastation.
