Cold Start: The Next India-Pakistan War is a strategic-level, two-player wargame of low-intermediate complexity that covers the campaign that could occur if the Indians decide to try for the big win over long-time opponent Pakistan. The title comes from the fact "Cold Start" is the phrase used by the Indian military to describe their officially declared policy of eschewing the first use of nuclear weapons in any future war with Pakistan. The game's sub-systems are crafted to present a supreme-commander's-eye-view of such a war. It's therefore almost fully strategic in its perspective, with only the most pastel of operational and tactical undertones added to enhance its tone and texture in those regards. CS takes two experienced players only about two hours to complete, and it's adaptable for solitaire play. From Modern War 36.
