    The 19th century empires of Russia and Britian engaged in a series of strategic conflicts in Central Asia known as The Great Game. Relive that history in only 18 cards.

    Based loosely on the COIN system, the Great Micro Game features a solitaire variant known as K1M (Kiplings 1-Player Mode). Despite the name, this allows you to play as either the British or Russian Empires.

    Originally an Entry for the 2015 18-Card Microgame Contest and the Mint Tin Contest, it won 1st place for Top 3 Designs by Guest Judge Chris Hansen.

    There are two editions of the game in the files section:
    Core Edition - This is the original entry that won the Mint Tin Contest Guest Judge Award. This is the more play-tested game and will likely be a better solo play experience
    Alternate Edition - This edition has a video explanation, some thematic tweaks, and a different rule set. I recommend this edition if you want to learn by video.
