Players for Illuminati Endgame 2012 wanted

I am looking for playtesters for my self-made board game “Illuminati Endgame 2012”. It’s already been playtested quite a bit so it already works quite well. I’m looking for that extra bit of fine-tuning with some new players.

Each game is expected to last a bit over an hour (15 minutes per player). Please read the rules beforehand (version 1.7)!

You can download the rules here:

You can download the game module here:

vassalengine.org/wiki/Module … dgame_2012 (version 1.3)

There can be a maximum of 6 participants.


Here is a short description of Illuminati Endgame 2012:

There are two opposing teams in this game. On one side are the “Free Peoples” players who can only win or lose together. Their main goal is to survive. On the other side are the “Illuminati” players who must both the defeat the “Free Peoples” players and lastly also their team members to win the game individually. Illuminati players need to get as much power as possible. Nobody knows who belongs to which side at the start of the game.

Each player starts up in a province on a world map and can then expand his civilization by gaining new provinces or building cities. He can also upgrade his technology level. At the end of each turn calamities may occur. A player gets “power points” which he can use for his actions or save his provinces from the effects of these calamities, so a player must strike a balance between these two.

The idea is to figure out on which team you belong and act accordingly. Illuminati players need to be aggressive while Free Peoples players just need to survive and can usually be peaceful.

It’s a tactical game with only a very small element of luck (the calamities at the end of each turn), so it becomes kind of like chess to plan your moves.
