MHGG Review - Twilight Struggle


Our hosts are joined once again by Katie, from Katie’s Game Corner, and they all go into the wayback machine into the Cold War with GMT Games’ Twilight Struggle. This card-driven area control game features two superpowers fighting for “control of the world,” so it is super low stakes, don’t worry. Does the theme and simple yet deep play structure make you want to attempt to coup BGG for letting this amazing game fall from number one, or does the thought of having to learn a bunch of cards to play with veteran players make you want to shout “Gorbachev tear down that wall! So I can literally play anything else!”? Find out inside! A BGG response closes out the show.
