Product Description

They're all around us. Secret conspiracies are everywhere, and where can you find the only truth? Certainly not in the game of Illuminati. Fnord.

By popular demand, Deluxe Illuminati (not to be confused with the trading-card version, INWO) is back in print! This new edition features full-color cards and improved money chits... but it's the same game you know and fear, of secret conspiracies battling for world control.

Warning: Contents are addicting
September 26, 2011

In my senior year of high school i started a chess club with our advisor being my equally nerdy chemistry teacher. One day he brought in this game and we played through it; i don't think we played a single game of chess after that night because we were all consumed by this game. This game is for the kids who always played banker in Monopoly because they liked to steal money when nobody was looking and for the kids who always made new rules..and then convinced everyone else they were real just to win an upperhand. This game is for the forward thinker, backstabber, and diplomat. Easily one of the greatest table games ive ever set hands on.

Great Game
February 25, 2004

that holds up well. People make it sound like this game is like playing the original Risk. I've NEVER played a game of Illuminati that lasted for more than 3 hours, and the cards are great, the interaction is great, and the premise is about as unique as they come. I love SOME of the German games (Puerto Rico) and hate others (Settlers is like craps without the cash) but for variety this game is a great part of my collection. Oh, and Cosmic Encounters is still one of the best games I've played, right up there with anything. What's wrong with a 3 hour game? Is our attention span that short in the 21st century? Maybe it has something to do with the 'fluoride' in the toothpaste . . .

The Rock Star of Games
September 15, 2003

I'm completely captivated by this game!

If you want a game where people sit silently and are polite to each other -- then don't play this game. If you want a game where you can play a fixed, tried and true, by the numbers strategies -- then don't play this game.

BUT, if you want a game where ONLY diplomacy can win; where lying, conniving, backstabbing and bluffing are considered good form; where fate can deal you a foul lot and you know that you can still win -- then play this game.

It's the rock star of games. A little brash, noisy, rough around the edges -- but it's where fun people go for hours and hours of delight.
