Hi,

which periods in history are covered in the game? I'd love to play this game and I would first like to watch some documentaries so that I recognize all the facts in the game.

Thx!

The back of the rule book http://www.gmtgames.com/living_rules/TSRules2nd.pdf has a description of the event related to the over one hundred cards in the game.

Thx. I know the description says:

Quote:
They cover a vast array of historical happenings, from the Arab-Israeli conflicts of 1948 and 1967, to Vietnam and the U.S. peace movement, to the Cuban Missile Crisis and other such incidents that brought the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation.


Are there any good documentaries that you could recommend which cover these historical happenings?

EDIT: thx Jack, didn't know that. Those pages quite some it up .

CNN did a pretty decent (if fairly one-sided, as they had little or no access to Russian sources, it seems), 24 part series on the Cold War, narrated by Kenneth Branagh.

Part 1 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaHnatRvhNw and they're all there I think.

Ghahh.. did Kenneth Branagh phone that in??.. I hope is softens as the series goes on. That is not the Henry V passion that I know of KB. ..Oh wait it is the Cold War...perhaps he is in character?!
