    I take it SPI was the name of the company that made the games, and not a description?

      Yep. They put out war stategy board games. Some of them were very creative.

          Pretty sure Freedom In the Galaxy was SPI. The character cards seemed very similar to Swords and Sorcery. Instead of magic items you'd get technology items.

            Yeah, I think so. The Soviet still got the NKVD.

              I regularly play the following SPI games (all republished by Decision Games):

              Battles for the Ardennes
              World War 1
              Battle for Germany

                Interestingly Decision Games also publishes Strategy and Tactics, Dunnigans old magazine that used to be SPI (now under a different editor) No mention on their site of any connection to SPI though.
