REVOLUTION!-Steve Jackson Games
From Boardgamegeek-Blackmail the printer. Threaten the innkeeper. Bribe the priest. Welcome to Revolution!
Secretly bid against your opponents to gain victory points, control territories (worth victory points at the end of the game) and collect more Gold, Blackmail, and Force tokens for the next round of bidding! Will you try to control the tavern or the fortress? The harbour or the plantation? Knowing where to push for points – and where to back away and let your opponents fight – is the key to victory. Whoever has the most victory points at the end of the game wins. It’s a game of bluff, counter-bluff, and surprise!
Bidding tokens have different shapes and colours for easy identification. Colourful cardstock shields keep your bids private and also provide a handy rules reference during the auction. Brightly-coloured wooden blocks allow players to see, at a glance. We have enjoyed playing and it’s extension.

The Facebook group of Headingley Games Club works so well. Active club members use Facebook to arrange games, give notice of events in the locality and share ‘photos and game activities and promote discussion of the playability of games. BUT we keep getting non-attending individuals who join of large membership with the only intention of advertising the commercial activities, sometimes disguised as competitions. The club is run by unpaid volunteers and does not see any reason why others should use our Facebook for private financial gain. NO SPAM ADVERTISING PLEASE: including non-attending member kickstarters. If you want to advertise please consult us and we will tell you the fees.
