“Us And Them - Cold War” is a turn-based strategy game about cold war. Although it is a game of territorial expansion, the rivals do not attack their opponent using military force. Instead they are using an army of Spies, Assassins and Experts of various kinds (l`ike economy, technology etc.) in order to destabilize the enemy's countries socially, economically, politically and finally to change their governments’ ideology and attach them in their own political block.
The player will have to manage resources like money, oil and technology. He must place his units strategically on the map and create a series of spy networks waiting for the right moment to unleash a series of sabotages, assassinations, bribes, revolutions, arrests and interrogations of enemy units. Since most of the units are hidden to the enemy, the collection and interception of crucial information about the countries, the units' attributes and their whereabouts is essential for victory.
All units, as a representation of actual persons, have their own skills and attributes that make them unique and allow the players to personally connect with them.
A series of special rules will allow you to deploy special strategies like the “Domino Effect” and the “Communist sandwich” and to take advantage of great personalities like Che Guevara, Henry Kissinger, Mao Ze Dong, the Pope and others.
Also the players will be able to benefit from advance technologies, using gadgets right out of James Bond's laboratories and some famous equipment of real life spies.
Finally, the game features a series of random events that in the most part are real events well known to the majority of the public.
