It's a (proper re-)print of an older game, a game inspired by TS and published as PnP, however, the TS designer jumps in and helped revamped the game and get it published (to get the magnificent components TS deluxe has)..

Di sini emang susah sih nyari TS player.. not a wargame enough, but not euro also.. rada banci, jadi untuk ke-elegan-an game ini, butuh dedikasi (minimal 2-3x main untuk lewatin "learning curve", dan satu gamenya bisa 3+ jam)..

1989 katanya revamped dari TS.. no Headline, no Coup, no Defcon, no premature win condition (trigger DEFCON 1), but also more drama on scoring (scoring card removed, a pre-battle of scoring with capsa style cardplay)..

So, which one is better? Well, theme wise, knowing INDONESIA is one of the country (even with 1 stability) in SE Asia is better than knowing a state in 6 countries of late communism countries..

Deck structure wise, 1989 is better with every opponent's card is a devastating event even with low valued ops, and most of it are starred events (removed from play).. So, accepting opponent's events early and mitigate its effect is better rewarded in the long run (the deck will skew toward your faction)..

Anyway, here's the link.. and enjoy

I still can't get enough of TS, so 1989 will have to wait.. But thanks for reminding its values..
