Twilight Struggle, once called 'the best boardgame on the planet' by FiveThirtyEight.com with only mild hyperbole, is the king of period-specific historical boardgames. With two players competing as the respective leaders of the United States and the Soviet Union, Twilight Struggle at once captures the broad themes of Cold War competition as well as the specific moments that defined the ideological deathmatch. After years as the darling of BoardGameGeek, XCOM: Enemy Within designer Ananda Gupta's tabletop masterpiece has finally been adapted to PC by Playdek.
At heart, Twilight Struggle is about influence: who can bring more countries into their sphere of influence and dominate the strategic no-man's land between East and West. The genius here is that rather than being weighed down with abstract systems and resources to simulate the Cold War, Twilight Struggle uses history itself to drive the action.
