"Today the bugle calls us again. This is not a call to take up arms, although we need weapons. It is not a call to battle, though we are engaged in battle, but it is a call to bear the burden of a long, twilight struggle.
 John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, January 1961

In 1945, improbable allies defeated the Nazi beast, while the most devastating weapons of mankind brought the proud Japanese empire to its knees in a fire storm. Where there were several great powers, there are only two left. The world barely had time to catch its breath. Contrary to the titanic clashes of previous decades, it was essentially not led by soldiers and tanks, but by spies and politicians, scientists and intellectuals, artists and traitors.
Twilight Struggle is a two-player game that simulates forty-five years of intrigue, prestige, and occasional outbreaks of violence between the Soviet Union and the United States. The whole world is the theatre on which these two titans fight to bring the world into line with their own ideals and way of life. The game begins among the ruins of Europe when the two new "superpowers" clashed on the debris of World War II, and ends in 1989, when only the United States remained standing.

The basis of the Twilight Struggle system inherits classic Card Drivens such as We the People and Hannibal: Rome vs Carthage. It's just as fast and not complex. The Event Cards cover a wide range of historical events, from the 1948 and 1967 Arab-Israeli conflicts in Vietnam and the US peaceful movement, to the Cuban missile crisis and other incidents of this kind that brought the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation. Internal mechanisms simulate the prestigious space race as well as nuclear tensions, with the possibility that nuclear war could end the game.

  • This game was played and recommanded by Étienne, here its opinion:

    Twilight Struggle est un jeu qui ne vous laissera pas froid !
    Il est consacré aux années de guerre froide avec deux camps en présence: les vilains impérialistes de l'oncle Sam ou les non moins vilains cocos. Et le monde est le terrain de jeu, mais attention à ne pas transformer la guerre froide en apocalypse nucléaire !
    Twilight Struggle est en fait un jeu de majorité mené par un système de "Card Driven". Les joueurs vont donc tenter d'étendre leurs zones d'influences sur la carte, en s’intéressant particulièrement aux pays pivots. Les cartes toujours justifiées par des événements historiques permettant d'ajouter ou d'enlever des cubes d'influences. Le jeu est divisé en trois périodes ce qui permet de respecter une cohérence dans la chronologie.
    Le résultat est une belle leçon de géopolitique qui en plus vous plonge au cœur de l'action. On comprend mieux certains événements historiques par la place qu'ils prennent dans des enjeux globaux.
    Le jeu, même si les règles sont consistantes, est au final fluide et logique. Une partie entre joueurs expérimentés se joue en trois heures. Il fait partie des jeux qui se racontent une fois la partie finie et rien que pour ça, si vous êtes un rien motivé, il faut y jouer !

    Excellent jeu à deux avec des règles simples permettant une jouabilité agréable tout en gérant des situations complexes. Bon, il est net cela conviendra plus aux amateurs d'histoire et de wargames qu'au organisateurs de soirées familiales

    Excellent jeu à deux. Probablement l'un des meilleurs !! Les règles sont en anglais mais elles sont facilement trouvables sur Internet. Le jeu est un peu difficile à prendre en main mais après quel plasir!!

    Nothing much to say here. An amazing card-driven Cold War Era game for history fanatics. Re-live the Cold War with fantastic gameplay mechanics and truly inmersive historical environments.
