Product Description

The Classic Game of Power, Money, Intrigue, and Revolution

POWER! Do you have enough influence and Pesos to become the new President of the República de las Bananas?

MONEY! Pesos for bribes, Pesos for assassinations. How will you get enough of those nice little bills to pay for your political wheeling and dealing? With the Monarchists on your side, you surely can figure something out ...

INTRIGUE! Pay a little money for an assassination to gain a lot more – you need only to guess correctly where the other members of the government are hidden!

REVOLUTION! Your assassins may not have been successful, but a group of misguided students in front of the Presidential Palace convinced you that the current regime is unbearable. Get ready to start a Coup and free the República de las Bananas of its corrupt leaders. Will the rebels choose you as their next President, or will you be sent to the firing squad at dawn?

JUNTA is a game of power, intrigue, money, and revolution in a fictional banana republic. It is everything but nice: The players lie, betray each other, embezzle, and assassinate the members of the other families to transfer millions of Pesos of foreign aid money to their bank accounts – which are conveniently located in Switzerland.

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.
