As far as I can see, there's no way to "win" no matter what is done, you will always have a nuclear strike, regardless of policy, political points, and public opinion towards hair trigger. The computer will massively de-arm and thenaunch next turn prior to the player being able to de-arm

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with the game. It is definitely possible to win, but it's not easy! It's part of what we're trying to teach with the game: Having so many nuclear weapons on hair trigger alert can lead to an accidental catastrophic event no matter how careful you are and how well you think negotiations are going.

Simple game about a nuclear holocaust potential. I managed to win on my second try, so it definitely is beatable. Not much replayability after your completed it though
