Description from the packaging.

It has been several years since the release of the original Balance of Power. In that time the political voices in the world have changed dramatically.

Now, in response to popular demand, master game designer Chris Crawford gives us Balance of Power: The 1990 Edition - a new and enhanced game of global politics and power struggles. Featuring a new multipolar level, this game allows 80 countries to ship weapons and troops and fight wars; your challenge as a superpower is to monitor their policies and use your influence - at times to the point of diplomatic crisis - to protect your interests.

New Features:

  • Covers eight years from 1989 to 1997.
  • Simulates real world political struggles in the nuclear age by allowing interaction among 80 countries (formerly 62).
  • Allows 4 levels of play, from Beginner to the complex Multipolar level.
  • Utilizes a vast and updated database and faster processing capabilities.
  • Includes a 4-person on-screen "crisis advisory" group for counsel in crisis.
  • Enhanced with non-nuclear war feature for smaller countries.
  • Includes both 1- and 2-player games.
