I can't remember the name of it, but it intrigued me and I wanted to check to see if it's rated high or not on bgg. Has anyone heard of something answering to this description? It's a very similar theme to TS, cold war, each player is either the US or USSR IIRC. It plays a lot more quickly than TS, and it appeared it basically used only cards, at least from the images on the back.

Is this ringing a bell with anyone? It appeared to me to be a newer game. Anyone know its title?

13 Minutes: The Cuban Missile Crisis?
Iron Curtain?

I really doubt any of them will feel like TS, mind. I know 13 Days certainly didn't for me.

Ah yes, Iron Curtain was the other one I was looking for, and I think is more likely to be what the OP wanted...

Oh wait, maybe this was it. Goldurn it.

Both 13 days and Iron Curtain look good though... I'll just grab both

I played both last month. I loved both. I think I prefer Iron Curtain a little bit more, because it has a spatial element that 13 minutes does not have, but OTOH 13 minutes has this DEFCON thing going on that's much more tense.

In addition to 13 Days, I have heard this said of the game 1989. And also 1960:The making of a President.

1989: Dawn of Freedom
1960: The Making of the President
