Hi,

i'm looking for a game in which i nuke my friend the hell out of the world.
a mix of Deterrence 2X62 and The Manhattan Project theme-wise

A game where is not either about making the bomb or using it, but both.
were we are both trying to set up and use or bomb on the other player.

Any range from 2~4(2 or 3 the best)
Card game, card-driven game, board game or minis, anything!
If possible, a dudes on a map game with that theme would actually be nailing 2 birds with one stone

not needed to be something realistic, in fact the deterrence theme is quite appealing to me.


i'm not sure if Twilight Struggle has anything on this context, but the game itself is too fiddly for me

I played the old Supremacy maybe 8 or 10 times with friends back in the day; every time we ended up destroying the world firing nukes at each other, despite agreeing "OK, this is stupid that we always all lose... this time, let's agree not to build nukes, OK?" (and inevitably someone would always renege and start building nukes...) It was cynically insightful about the stupidity of human nature...

I see that there is some updated new version Supremacy 2020 (but I have not seen or played it).

Innovation, but it's not a winning strategy.

I'm sure next time will be different, Russ. Lets play!
