Twilight Struggle game with my offspring

Managed to entice son Steven (who is home from University for summer) away from PC and electronic games long enough for a game of Twilight Struggle.
I took Soviets and he the Capitalists.
A really good game that went right down to last turn. Commies managed to reach 19 VPs twice but each time I just could not get that final point before being knocked back down the Victory Track.
As we got into Late War phase the Yanks got a good run of VPs themselves and game finished with them on 14 VP and enough areas dominated to carry the day. Great fun and nice to play a game to completion.
The gloating over 'beating Dad at Dad's game' is however less palatable.


  1. so my victory is forever enshrined on the internet
