A game of escalation where everyone can lose.
Inspired on the one hit wonder song 99 Red Balloons by Nena.
Our second month of One Hit Wonders is based on 99 Red Balloons, which was a one hit wonder in the US, but one of many in Nena's native Germany. Other hits include Irgendwie, irgendwo, irgendwann and ? (Fragezeichen).
Designed by Suzanne Zinsli (of Cardboard Edison) this is a neat trick taking game where players are trying to reach the end of the cold war track (9 spaces) before the world war track reaches 9, with 9's being trump!
