Nuclear War the Card Game Tournament

2pm Saturday May 19th

A comical cataclysmic card game for 2-6 players of all ages. A humorous confrontation between touchy world powers as each player attempts to sway his opponents' populations with diplomacy, propaganda, and finally nuclear weaponry. Little old ladies defect in electric cars and the dread SUPERGERM spreads devastation! Takes about 10 minutes to learn and about 30 minutes to play. Invented by Doug Malewicki in 1965 and published by Flying Buffalo, this game has remained popular for over 50 years.

3-4 rounds, depending on how many players.

Bring a copy of the game (Not the expansions) and you get to go first!

Standard Nuclear War deck. (maybe a few surprises)

Everyone who enters gets a Nuclear War expansion card!

Everyone who wins a game, gets a prize!

Everyone who blows up the world (TRIPLE THE YIELD!!!), gets a prize!

Tournament winner gets a BIG prize!

SPECIAL GUEST JUDGE: the 2016 Gen-Con Nuclear War TCG tournament winner.

like that traitor John Carter, who fight with them. But untold riches
and new discoveries await the intrepid. Leave behind your humdrum life
and take ship for the Martian Frontier!
