Games about real world or fictional politics
The Cylons were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies. And then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters. After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared and the Cylons left for another world to call their own. Forty years later, they returned, and brought humanity to the brink of extinction. The remaining humans, led by the crew of the Battlestar Galactica, fled in hope of finding a new home, one known by legend as Earth. Humanity’s only hope lies in finding Earth’s location while fighting off the unrelenting Cylons. But as resources run low, it is discovered that the enemy can now appear human and has infiltrated the fleet from the inside. Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game provides a unique gaming experience. Unlike most games where players win individually, Battlestar Galactica is a cooperative game, with the added complication that one or more of the players is a secret Cylon traitor – your entire side will win or lose, and you might not even be certain who is on your side until the game ends!
What would YOU do with a Time Machine? Would you stop the sinking of the Titanic? Prevent the assassination of JFK? Kill Hitler before WWII? These are just a few of the possibilities in Chrononauts, the award-winning card game of time travel. In Chrononauts, you play a time traveler trying to get back to your unique timeline by changing some of history’s biggest linchpins and watching the way those changes ripple into the future. An excellent discussion starter about how historic events are intertwined.
Axia. A land with a glorious past, a most uncertain present, and an even more unpredictable future. The goal in Crisis is to survive, and even thrive, in business while everything else is collapsing around you. Set in a struggling nation rife with social unrest, a handful of industrialists see opportunity in the midst of economic crisis. Players send their managers to bail out struggling businesses, recruit employees, raise capital, and produce goods for export. In the shifting market, players compete for foreign contracts or for some quick cash in the black market. Shady business tactics can win influence or grease the right palms, but too much corruption may lead to rioting. Do you have the cunning to profit from this crisis and defeat your rivals?
