I enjoy the hell out of it on camping trips, but most people have never heared of it before.

Do you have change for 10,000,000?

Nope but my branch of the service got to op's check two crowd-pleasers in preparation for "the big one"...

I had a buddy really into it. It was ok, but I could never get as enthused about it as he did.

We used to play the hell out of it in college. That and Modern Navel Battles. I had a pirated PC version that was pretty fun to play as well.

Still have it and the sequel, "Nuclear Escalation". My kids love it.

I won first prize in that game back in the mid-80sat a gaming convention. It was a pretty decent game, and the expansion was even better. Too bad it's not more popular; most people I tried to introduce it to thought it was ghoulish.

I am bringing it and Illuminati with me to Iraq. Hopefully I can get some other people interested.

I had Nuclear War and Illuminati, but me and my friends never found it that fun.

Where can I get more info on it? Sounds neat!
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 7:13:26 PM EDT
is it anything like the game called "war"? two players put down cards, high card takes the pair. if the two cards are the same then you put one card face down and another card face up, and the high one wins all the cards that have been put down. repeat until you have all the cards, or ar bored out of your mind

Greatest. Game. Ever.

OMFG!



I played SO much of that game.

I owned a game shop and, almost always had the
local nerds hanging around playing....They
were they best for drumming up buisness.



DAMN that was a fun game.

I loved dumping a dumpster full of warheads off satellite platforms on someone.

"Dude...You drop that cruise missile on me and, I'm going to empty
my fookin' orbital weapons on you!"

It's too bad Flying Buffalo has their head up their ass, because I have been trying to get a new copy for a while, with no sucess.

I love how its possible to wipe everyone off the face of the game and therefore not have a winner.

"I dont like you Bam! ha ha no one wins"

That's Super Germ. Super Virus look like a vampire.

I once brought that game into work! (Really!)

During lunch I’d get that game out and we’d play!

About this time the movie War Games was still in memory. When lunch time came one or another of us would say, “Shall we play a game?” Out came the game and away we’d go.

Once Christmas I drew a Christmas tree, but without any decorations, (You should see the things you can do with colored thumbtacks, pipe cleaners and assorted magic markers) and posted it on a bulletin board. We took some of the cards, made copies of Certain cards, and stuck them on the top of the tree. It looked like the Little Old Lady on a scooter was chasing a Spy up one side of the tree and down the other.

And, NO!, the game never interfered with our work.

Shades of Fort Hood and the yells of "Back off 10 klicks and nuke 'em until they glow!"
