Description Edit | History

From the back of the box:

Global Power Struggle Begins
Which nation will take the lead and become world's dominant superpower?

The Manhattan Project makes you the leader of a great nation's atomic weapons program in a deadly race to build bigger and better bombs. You must assign your workers to multiple projects: building your bomb-making infrastructure, expending your military to protect it, or sending your spies to steal your rival's hard work!

You alone control your nation's destiny. You choose when to send out your workers–and when to call them back. Careful management and superior strategy will determine the winner of this struggle. So take charge and secure your nation's future!

Additional description:

The Manhattan Project is a low-luck, mostly open information efficiency game in which players compete to build and operate the most effective atomic bomb program. Players do not "nuke" each other, but conventional air strikes are allowed against facilities.

The game features worker placement with a twist; There are no rounds and no end-of-round administration. Players retrieve their workers when they choose to or are forced to (by running out).

An espionage action allows a player to activate and block an opponent's building, representing technology theft and sabotage.

11 Solo variant vs. 2 different AIs
This is mainly the solo variant by Elad, posted in the variants forum. I slightly modified it and also added a second robot, that behaves differently than the original one. You can play against one or both. (posted with permission from Elad)

6 The Manhattan Project Component Icons
Here are images/icons of each component within the The Manhattan Project base game. I use these as an add on to my labels for my baggies, but you could also use these in Plano boxes, Tuck Boxes, or where ever else you see fit. Use them as you please. All the player markers may look a little off, but that is the way it is in the rule book. The same goes for the worker images. A few of them contain thin lines, but it is nothing detrimental.
