In October 1956, emboldened by the signs of Poznan, students and intellectuals in Budapest, the Hungarian capital, organize a protest of previously unseen magnitudes. As the Communist leadership sweeps in to kill the movement in its tracks, a violent response is provoked, thus sparking the Revolution of the 23rd of October. One player plays as the Soviet force, trying to hold the movement back, while a group of 1-3 players are the revolutionaries, driving the movement forward through the seven days between 23rd and the 29th of October 1956. Otherwise, play cooperatively as a group of 1-4 revolutionaries against an AI Soviet force. This game was created to honor the exceptional unity of the Hungarian society during the fights; the memory of the Hungarian citizens - workers, students, intellectuals - who took part in the fights, who got injured or killed, or who had to leave the country after the fall of the revolution; and the aid coming from abroad (from many Polish citizens or with the help of the International Red Cross from different countries). Ages 14+, 1-4 Players, 60-90 minute playing time
