Minutes to Midnight (Manhattan Project 2) – first look

Punched and played this Christmas present for the first time, and here are some first impressions:

The bomber-heavy Soviets

The development of your own industry is crucial and, together with technology investment, involves some nice engine building.

High level subs are immensely expensive to research and produce, but immensely satisfying to deploy. The decoy mechanism is simple, but really neat.

Subs overloaded the German ABM defenses

Different approaches to technology allow different strategies, and espionage is another simple but elegant mechanism.

Overall, it’s full of strategy and tension and I’m really looking forward to getting it to the table again.
