In the not too distant future, the government is run for profit by a new “royal class” of multi-national CEOs. Their greed and absolute control of the economy has reduced all but a privileged few to lives of poverty and desperation. Out of the oppressed masses rose a rebellion, an underground organization focused on overthrowing these powerful rulers. The valiant efforts of the rebels have created discord, intrigue and weakness in the political courts of the noveau royal, bringing the government to brink of collapse. But for you, a powerful government official, this is your opportunity to manipulate, bribe and bluff your way into absolute power.
To be successful, you must destroy the influence of your rivals and drive them into exile. In these turbulent times there is only room for one to survive.
G54 uses the same lightning fast rules found in Coup – claim, counter, challenge and bluff – and then adds an exciting strategic layer via character selection.
Before each game starts, five character roles are chosen randomly from 25 different cards. Each of the five characters has a unique ability – the combination of abilities and interplay between them makes each game unique. This allows for over 5,000 different ways to play the game!
Coup: Rebellion G54 is a stand-alone game and does not require Coup to play.
