In the game, the player takes the role of the President of the United States or General Secretary of the Soviet Union. The goal is to improve the players countrys standing in the world relative to the other superpower. During each yearly turn, random events occur that may have effects on the players international prestige.

This creates brinkmanship situations between the two nations, potentially escalating to a nuclear war, which ends the game. Crawford was already well-known, especially for Eastern Front 1941.
