Product Description

8 banana republics and heaps of bribe money form the background for the satirical game of power in the world.

Government and Opposition, Military and Financiers and of course the Guerillas are the participants in Putsch. The players try to control these groups in order to further their positions. In each new round the political groups are just waiting for you to trim your sails to the wind -- of course only with appropriate "donations".

Revenue is transferred, foreign governments are taken over, and of course a revolt won't be long in coming.

Make sure to keep an eye on all the cards, because the action of a group can have extensive consequences -- and suddenly, the military which you had planned to use in a glorious revolution suddenly has completely different orders.

At the end, whoever holds the strings to the most "puppets", wins the struggle for power under the hot Caribbean sun.
