    Proxy War immerses players in the conflicts of the modern era where angry citizens take up arms against an oppressive government while lurking foreign powers try to beat their rivals through exploiting war for profit. Proxy War is the ultimate 2-8 player game of cooperation and competition where players become dictators, rebels, and greedy foreign powers.

    Rebels & the Government are in a bloody struggle to seize land & secure Resources for the war. Resources are funneled out to the global market through ambitious Foreign Powers, eager to outdo their rivals. And Military Equipment is funneled in for a quick profit or to shore up an ally’s success on the battlefield.

    Every 2-3 player match has 1 winner. Every 4-8 player match has 2 winners. Different players have different Victory Objectives. Government and Rebel players are trying to eliminate each other and be the last player on the board. Foreign Powers are competing with one another to be the first to gain 10 Victory Points. The game ends when a player meets their Victory Objective, OR if 10 turns have progressed without anyone winning outright.

    Proxy War is made up of 10 turns, with each turn having 3 phases: Collection, Negotiation, Action. During the Collection phase, Government and Rebel players collect Resources cards from the tiles they control. In the Negotiation phase, players trade Resources and Equipment, discuss building Factories together, and coordinating their actions for the Action phase. During the Action Phase, players will have a menu of actions but they can only choose three actions per Action phase (Build, Move, Support, Bombard).
