More than 8000 supporters, in continuous increase, have allowed themselves to be convinced by the campaign on Kickstarter from Hegemony: Lead Your Class to Victory, a board game in which each player represents a different political class in constant struggle with the others to emerge as the dominant one in society.
Today we present the crowdfunding of a title that is certainly very ambitious, but which seems to have numbers that are often reached by titles of a completely different kind. This is the first campaign run by the young publisher Hegemonic Project Games.
Hegemony: the political game of social classes is on Kickstarter
Hegemony is a board game for 1 to 4 players, in which each will lead a choice between the working class, the middle class, the capitalist class and the state. As is evident, each of them has its own aims and wants to privilege its own members, in a struggle that is not just about survival but about supremacy. A game of Hegemony: Lead Your Class to Victory lasts between 90 and 180 minutes.
It is a card-driven game, in which each class has their own deck on which they will act. The actions have implications in the economic, labor, welfare state or tax fields. In short, as can also be seen from the campaign and the regulation (already available) the authors Vangelis Bagiartakis AndVarnavas Timotheou they wanted to recreate a situation as realistic as possible, also by consulting with sociologists and political scientists to better describe the organization of our society; included in the Kickstarter campaign there will be a sort of development diary with reflections and concepts behind the gameplay.
This title, which promises to be full of interaction also thanks to a voting system, but certainly of Eurogame matrix, will end its campaign on Kickstarter on December 2nd; for those interested, it is also possible to do a couple of rounds of the table on Tabletopia. The cost for a copy is quite affordable, 59 euros. The delivery in the hands of the backers, whatever the social class they belong to, should take place in November 2022.
