Here is your chance to be the leader of a Superpower. Your objective is to conquer the world through economic, political and military strategy.
Supremacy is the game where you make decisions that face Superpower leaders today. Should you sell oil or buy grain? Build armies and navies or launch laser stars? Your toughest decision will be: to “nuke” or not to “nuke”.
The key rules of the game appear on the board. This leaves your mind free to think about strategy.
Supremacy Box Text
Supremacy is a game for two to six players. It is a game for people who would rather shape the world than be shaped by it.
I’ve got one of these very striking Supremacy wargame sets passing through the shop. My wife took photos of the components. I hope this helps folks in the future, checking their games for completeness.

Reblogged this on From Poland to America: Our Classic Twilight 2000 RPG Campaign and commented:
Supremacy came out in ’86, when Twilight 2000 was in its best years.
These mushroom cloud tokens are badass
I remember that game. Kind of like Monopoly meets Diplomacy. What I recall of the strategy is picking the right time to switch from developing resources to building nukes. If you start the arms race too soon you bankrupt yourself, but if you wait too long and the other players start without you, you’ll get creamed before you catch up.
