    Well the basic game would be something where each player has either more military might, resources (oil) which can be converted to purchase weapons, lastly, a nation could have political (diplomacy points) which is can earn if it stays out of trouble and which can also be exchanged for bargining chits…

    i picture a card system for random events and also the “currency cards” consisting of diplomacy, military, political, economic influence… each coalition would have some basic point value representing armies and a defined number of these cards that can be exchanged in a diplomacy phase of the game. The goal is eventually reaching some point goal whereby a player counts up his military forces, conquered nations, and all those political cards that he traded for during the game. Also each nation would have some national goals that it could achieve in order to gain victory. The nuclear option would be the great denyer to any player who was winning with a huge margin… the other players could gang up and drop bombs if somebody got too far ahead in the point race. Yaquinto games made a nice game called “ultimatum” (i own this).  also SPI had a nice game called world war 3 ( i have this too). the last game has no diplomacy except when its time to use the nuclear option.

  • Take Brazil out. It’s not really a world power. Instead add North Korea (a developing nation, since they have nukes and ballistic missiles and all that). Also since the war is in the Mid East add Israel and Pakistan.

    Id say the same thing… the South American nations are really only militarily set up for regional conflicts… they are not capable of having a war with say any major player. they make good minor neutrals.

  • I’ve been working on the same thing. I posted my map for printing at zazzle.com. I kept it more basic then what’s been discussed here, just China, Russia and allies, NATO, and USA and aliies. I based the force levels on current data from strategypage.com, Janes Defense, and the Federation of Atomic Scientists. (excellent reference if you ever need to know who has what for strategic and tactical nuclear weapons systems). I have the map saved as a photoshop document but it’s over 400 MB. The rules I can email to anyone interested.

  • I just found another game of this type:

    April 04, 2006
    Fantasy Flight Games has an ambitious slate of board games set for 2006.  In addition to the games based on Blizzard Entertainment properties (see “Fantasy Flight Expands Blizzard Lines”), FFG is planning on releasing two new big box board games, Reins of Power, a game of geopolitical superpower diplomacy,  and Tide of Iron, a game of World War II-era squad-based tactical combat.  Both of these large format board games will come with lots of plastic figures, plenty of cards, dice and cardboard markets.

    have to wait and see what this one looks like

    Tide of iron was played at gencon 2006 . you can see pics of it. It will comeout in dec. The other game will be looking like 2008 release.

  • Yeah, I was looking at Reins of Power. 2008 you say?  I also see you already posted the Federation of Atomic scientist links as well. I’d be glad to help if anyone needs it.

  • for nuclear weapons i think you could try this these are the rules i use. the US and Russia  only starts
    with 11 nuclear missiles each., so if your having a lot the rules would probabbly be differnt. i’m not sure about the price for one thou. if you are the first person to launch a missle you collect half of your income(round down) this turn; your country went on strike.
    For nuclear weapons if it struck a territory the economy would fail not producing IPCs, with any factory there destroyed.  Half the infantry die per missle from nuclear fallout with 1 infantry being lost from each boarder territory also per nuclear missile.  This space can’t be occupied by land units.  When a factory is built there all this is undone. I’m not sure about cost but they can move like this,Medium-4, Short 1, Long-7.  Antiaircraft guns and fighters can defend against any nuclear missile that go’s though the territory.  Fighters can only defend for one round while Antiaircraft guns still work the same. heres where the nukes would be
