Crisis in The Kremlin
DOS - 1991
Description of Crisis in The Kremlin
Here's your chance to prove Gorbachev right -- or wrong. Your initial choice as either Ligachov, Yeltsin, or Gorbachov affects your initial posture in domestic and foreign policy which you can adjust at any time.
As with other political sims, the goal here is to be in power the longest without being thrown out by opposing parties. It's a solid sim, although replay value is limited because many crises (e.g. 1986 Chernobyl disaster) do not vary from game to game. Recommended for everyone interested in cold-war era USSR or real-world politics.

This game is a bit of a forgotten gem; it's a surprisingly good political sim. I have downloads for it on my CitK page (http://peyre.x10.mx/Kremlin/index.htm), including the manual and a couple mods that improve the game. One of them unlocks post-1991 crises that don't normally appear, such as the Bay of Pigs II scenario.
Ertrael/deadxp, I don't know how to hack the budget or GNP exactly, but you can change the effects of your decisions by editing RESULTS.DAT.

This game is nearly impossible to play as a hardliner . This is reinforced by 3 stats : 1.food never goes past 4 squares
2. Political power never reaches past 4 squares
3. The republics leaving can not be stopped
Please inform my if there is a good hardline strategy / tips.

I got to 2016!
Be careful though, by this time, you probably lost all Soviet republics except the Moscow region.

This game is awesome, but unfortionally the game seems to crash for me at a certain point in dec 1989... I have saved, but the game still crashes at the same spot...

This is awesome! I never got around to moving this game off of the 5.25" disks before my disk drive died. Now I can play it again! Thanks!
