Play Time:
30 minutes or less
The "Go Code" has been received and the war plan decoded; it is time to turn your B-52 into Soviet air space and head for your primary target. You've got 50,000 lbs. of fuel, two H-bombs, a crew looking to you for leadership, and a mission that your country needs you to fulfill.

Toe-to-Toe Nu'klr Combat with the Rooskies, from designer Chris Taylor, is a fast-playing solitaire game. You decide the payload, pick your targets, and must then challenge the Soviet Union's defenses.

SAMs (surface-to-air missiles) and MiG-21 fighter / interceptors will find you as you cross "The Big Board." Events will relentlessly dog you and your crew as the fate of America, even the world, rests on your shoulders. A single mission can be accomplished in about 15 minutes, or take an hour for the whole campaign game. Take a darkly humorous trip in a less-than-serious game exploding with atomic fun.

Nuclear Fun by Bill Floyd (BoardGameGeek)
Fortunately, the only difficulty any new player will have with this [game] is trying to properly pronounce the title. Sure, the title is "cute" in its effort to inject some humor into a most serious subject, but most wargamers don't care to be politically correct -- after all, we regularly kill thousands, if not millions, of cardboard soldiers in our quest for fun -- and let there be no doubt about it, Toe-to-Toe Nu'klr Combat with the Rooskies is fun!
