Fantasy Flight Reprint Cold War Card Games

Ever wonder what it would have been like to be Secret Service operative during the Cold War? Me neither. But now we can find out with Fantasy Flight Games set to release a reprint of the two player card game Cold War: CIA vs KGB.

“In Cold War, each player takes on the role of the director of either the CIA or the KGB as they attempt to gain control of various countries. To win control of a country, players take turns drawing cards from a shared deck of “Group Cards,” which come in one of four categories: Military, Media, Economy, and Politics. These cards each have a number, and players must keep adding them to their play area until the sum of these numbers equals a value on the contested country, without going over.”

This looks like a really interesting game concept and I would really like to get my hands on it to see how the game plays out. The one problem is that whenever I see CIA vs KGB I can’t stop thinking of that episode of Deadliest Warrior.
