Deserves all of the accolades it has received. It recreates the tension and suspicion of the Cold War in ways that are a little unsettling. It forces the players to think like large superpowers, worried if random movement in isolated areas means larger plans, and disregarding the sovereignty of smaller nations. That it is a tactically and strategically rich game is almost gravy at that point. Definitely one of the best two-player games out there.
