The Revolution Will Be Mechanised!
Cogs and Commissars is a clever card game of glorious robot revolution, where players control the means of production.
You are an inspirational leader! You might take the role of the Artificial Stalintelligence, Simulenin, or Gorobotchev, among others. You have your own faction and your own deck of cards.
On your turn, you grow your faction in two ways:
- First, you produce more robot citizens.
- But also, you use propaganda to sway citizens from other factions to join your own chrome-plated cause.
You also play cards to send rival robots to the gulag, promote citizens within your faction, revitalise production, and more. Each turn your actions make your faction grow.
Once you have enough citizens aligned with your algorithm, you launch your glorious robot revolution.Other factions struggle valiantly to keep you from achieving this goal — only the most stalwart robot faction can win above all others.
For the motherboard!
