Hi, everyone. I am trying to identify an old PBM game I played for a while in the early 80's. I can't remember the name anymore (sucks to get old) but the setting was post apocalyptic and players played leaders of what had been 3rd world countries until most of the 1st and 2nd world nuked each other. It had resource management, diplomacy and armed conflict. You could buy and build old tech and research and build up tech, also. I remember my air force had a lot of P-51s. I tried googling but no luck finding anything that sounded right. Any of this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks for any help.

It does suck to get old, and that does sound really familiar. If I had time I'd dig through my old magazines and see what I could turn up.

Getting old beats the alternative.

Sounds like a Schubel & Sons game. Did it have "extra actions" that you could do if you spent extra money? If so it was probably Global Supremacy.

There's a old rule book for it on sale at ebay, does it look familiar?


At $65 USD it's a rip, considering they are rules for a PBM game.

Hi, folks. Thanks very much for the help. I think it might have been Global Supremacy. I seem to remember that when a country was wiped out, the turn report would say "blank no longer answers the radio."

Sounds a bit like 'Garstand' which I partipated in about 1984.
