Extra Politics: The Partisans
The Partisans is a tabletop game for 4-6 players based on the Extra Credits mini-series, Extra Politics. In the game, you play a political ideology attempting to move the government towards your goals. Of course, other players have different ideas about what the government should be doing...
Politics without Parties or Politicians. Playing an ideology allows the game to be played by people of all political leanings (or no political leaning at all) without causing... issues...
Negotiation, Back Stabbing, and Dirty Tricks. Gather dirt on your opponents, team-up with powerful lobbyists, and play to the mob in order to get what you want. To win, you'll need to "Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence." - George Washington
4-6 Players! So many games on your shelf max out at 4 players. Partisans starts at 4, and was created to work best at 5 or 6 players - perfect to for when more than 4 people show up on game night.
First Extra Credits Tabletop Game! Many of the mechanics in the game were specifically derived from the knowledge gained doing the Extra Politics series.
Fast fun for everyone. Easy to teach, and fun for players who are into politics as well as gamers who just really like games with negotiations and treachery. Players of all political leanings (or none at all) can play together without getting into actual political fights.
