Product Description

A humorous card game with a tongue-in-cheek view of international diplomacy, propaganda, and finally: holocaust! Two to six players engage in touchy negotiations until a warmonger pushes the button! This hilarious card game is easy to learn and fast to play. But watch out: if everyone is wiped out -- nobody wins!

Great game
September 18, 2009

Really funny game! It's fun to play and it's not a long game to play!

This is a classic!
February 27, 2004

This Game is the best. I have been playing it for 15 years now, and it just is so awesome! While it is certainly not as sophisticated as some of the newer magic type card games, it is a classic, and should be experienced by all true game players! Check it out if you ever get a chance.

Nuke Your Neighbor!
August 14, 2002

This is the game to play when you are waiting for the last guy to show up, or you don't have enough time left play a 'real' game. This game is not about 'counting up points at the end of a round'. It is a man's game, sort of like getting drunk and arm-wrestling, or getting drunk and seeing who can slap the other guy faster, or getting drunk and... Well, you get the picture.

Sure, there is a lot of strategy, but most of it amounts to not pissing people off while simultaneously not looking like a pushover. So drink a beer to Kruschev's ghost and hide your last 25 million people in your pocket...
