    Description

    Revolution! represents the problems facing the French State between 1789 and 1796.

    It is a game of intrigue which aims to recreate the politics of the Revolution from the reactionary Monarchists, through the moderate Girondins, to the radical and ultra radical Jacobins.
    At the end of the game the French Revolution will have settled on a dictatorial pattern of leadership: the very environment that resulted in Napoleon’s assumption of power.

    The game takes place in the French National Assembly building. Players represent one of three political factions each composed of a group of famous characters. They must find solutions to the problems of state raised by this turbulent period whilst wrestling one another for political control.

    Each political faction, and in the advanced game each character, has their own agenda to promulgate whilst simultaneously denying their opponents power. Like all forms of politics power is exercised by a series of votes. Players may use debate, bribery, bullying and scurrilous accusation to win these votes. To win this game you must be prepared to engage in all of these activities at some point.
