Welcome to Revolution!
Secretly bid against your opponents to gain the support of the people, win territory . . . and gather more Gold, Blackmail, and Force for the next round of bidding! Will you try to control the tavern or the fortress? The harbor or the plantation? Knowing where to push for support – and where to back away and let your opponents fight – is the key to victory. It's a game of bluff, counter-bluff, and surprise.
Bidding tokens have different shapes and colors for easy identification. Colorful cardstock shields keep your bids private, and provide a handy rules reference during the auction. Traditional wooden blocks allow players to see, at a glance, who controls which territories.
Revolution! is for three or four players. The rules can be taught in minutes, and a complete game takes less than an hour. Each new game brings new strategies and tactics.
Get ready for Revolution!

|Revolution! is a simultaneous blind bidding game which picked up on the fact that some games are only best with 3 or 4 players - and published it as such! It's a much better choice than to extend the suggested player count to suit larger groups, and thanks to this limit the game always plays enjoyably. Players have influence in the forms of wealth, blackmail, and force, each type trumping the one before it and each type being harder to acquire. Depending on what each player bids on and wins, they will receive a new supply of bidding tokens for the next round, cubes of control in varoius buildings on the map (to award lump sums at the game's end), or immediate movement along the victory track. It's a well-balanced game and very fun, but don't take it personally if one player tends to end up screwed. It does happen, but we still like to play it again!
