Balance of Power: The 1990 Edition reviews

"It's complex, it's involving, it's certainly thought-provoking and it's difficult to play in ten minute sessions. Set aside a lot of time and you'll get a lot of enjoyment from the game. Absorbing stuff that gives an insight into the devious world of Geopolitics." - ACE Magazine Issue 03 (1987)

Collector's corner:

In 1986, Crawford published a book, also called Balance of Power, which details the internals of the game great depth. It explains the background of the politics, the formulas used to calculate prestige and related parameters, and an account of its (lengthy) gestation.
