In the not too distant future, the government is run for profit by a new "royal class" of multi-national CEOs. Their greed and absolute control of the economy has reduced all but a privileged few to lives of poverty and desperation. Out of the oppressed masses rose The Resistance, an underground organization focused on overthrowing these powerful rulers. The valiant efforts of The Resistance have created discord, intrigue and weakness in the political courts of the novena royal, bringing the government to brink of collapse. But for you, a powerful government official, this is your opportunity to manipulate, bribe and bluff your way into absolute power.

(2019 - 6.5) The old review still stands but after having more experience with various other games this one is a bit left in the shadows.(2015 - 7.5) A simple and very quick game. Could potentially be better played in rounds requiring multiple victories to win the overall game. As is, whoever loses a single influence tends to lose interest in any strategy due to the short length of the game.
A very beautifully balanced game.Two copies, one English/Japanese second edition, one French second edition.
--Sep2013-- Amusing "hidden role" game. (For me, it has echoes of _Hoax_, which was the first of that flavour I'd played.) This has sensible rules, and plays cleanly. And I'm totally content to both play again if asked and not bother buying it.
