Oligarchy is a new trading card game for two or more players set in a dystopian near-future. You play an Oligarch striving to maintain your power as others try to collapse your regime. Use your power base to control your Oligarchy and assert your influence to dominate the world and crush your opposition!
Battling it out with other players – your aim is to destroy your opponents’ power base and dismantle their Oligarchy, whilst strengthening your own.
Your Oligarchy is strengthened by aligning your power to your preferred factions. How will you generate your power and create your own deck of unbeatable cards? Will you use military might, criminal skullduggery, controlling religions, connections to the Illuminati, or many more options?
Oligarchy is due for release in Q1 2016 and our kick starter campaign will be starting soon so register your interest today at www.oligarchygame.com
The year is 2080, our world is broken. The masses are kept in line by unseen individuals that vie for dominance. Figureheads have carved their own power base out of the world’s developing technologies and theologies by manipulating the populace and creating a series of Oligarchies. This world can’t be saved, only controlled.
Corporations have openly merged with governments and media organisations to supress us. Education is being replaced with information, which can be manipulated, bought, and sold. Economics and fiscal matters are controlled to keep the population enslaved into a cycle of work and compliance through fear.
The ecologists and those of religious faith have gained power as the populace crave freedom from the oppression. Supporters rally to worship deities and mother earth in the hopes that strength in numbers and firm belief in the power of good can change the future. They wish to punish the heretical activities of governments and corporations. As always, even this power breeds corruption beneath the surface.
The military strive for nothing more than full control of any civil unrest and will protect those that fund, rather than those it was supposed to serve. We see the bolder emergence of criminal and illuminati figureheads. Some say alien influence may have heralded new developments in technology and paranormal endeavours which these factions are beginning to wield to gain yet more power.
You are a powerful Oligarch who has struggled your entire life to carve out a piece of this dystopian future. Your power has grown to a level where you have heads of corporations, military leaders, and shadowy agents at your disposal. Those you can’t control with Power; you buy with your amassed wealth and influence. You are the leader of your own Oligarchy.
Others are attempting to stand in your way. You can feel your power slipping as they draw their plans against you. It’s clear then… they must be crushed if you are to have the supreme Oligarchy. Let the games begin!
