This game is a simulation of multiple nations trying to build bridges between each other. The nations must search, drill and trade for 3 different kinds of oil. In order to prosper a nation needs the kind of oil that can only be drilled for in the other nation. Stagnant economies will activate A nations' "Computer assisted Defense" system. This system will cause conflict with the other side for a short period of time. Communication between the countries are through a limited computer "Hotline".
