Great Group Game!
October 03, 2003

For this game its all about backstabbing, making alliances, and doing whatever you can to win. All is fair in junta and war!

The more people the merrier.

Special Hint, be the Minister of Defense whenever you can get in the good graces of El Presidente.

Most fun I've ever had
June 24, 2003

How many games allow you to assassinate your best friend, mercilessly crush a rebel coup, and deposit your ill-gotten gains in a secret swiss account? One. Junta.

The concept alone is brilliant, but the incredible fairness (with regards to rules, anyway) and diversity of the game (and I've easily played a hundred times with 30 or more people) make it a must-play for anyone with even a passing interest in strategy/diplomatic gaming.

The board leaves something to be desired, as do the tokens (particularly the Demon-Strators) but the humor contained in every facet of the game, from the illustrations on the cards to the rulebook itself, more than make up for any shortcomings here. The game is just plain excellent.

Politics for people without patience
April 06, 2003

The game Junta is by far one of the best bord game I have evere played, bringing in everything from poletics to downright humor.

When you play you can become the president and experience the thrill of sending your friends and famely to the fiaring squad, or if things go wrong, you get sent in sted.

With money, budjet, assasinations, elections etc etc you have fun trying to take control over this little island. But taking control is not the important part, for I belive we all know (so does the creators of this game) that it is all about filling up your Swiss bank account.

And when everything go wrong, then the the fun really start : Revelution.

All you have to do is play the game once and you will see why it has deserved it's place here.
