A Leader is needed. Now.

When the Orc tribes attacked, we were caught unaware. Decades of peace under the leadership of Mayor Quill had made us lax in watching the borders.

Quill was cut down in one of the first assaults. As word of his passing got out, our defences rapidly faltered. We need leadership to guide New Gallagher to victory.

The enemies power increases as ours dwindles. There is no time left – whoever can muster the most support among the prominent townsfolk by nightfall will be Mayor.

There is no other way.

Succession: Desperate Times is a card drafting game for 3-6 players where you are each vying to become the next Mayor of New Gallagher, under less than ideal conditions.

During play, each player will select a Supporter from their hand and place it face down in front of them. In turn order, each player will then choose to either place a Bribe on a Supporter they control and increase it’s Influence, or to Reveal one of their face down Supporters, activating their special ability. Beware though, that if multiples of the same Supporter are visible, only the most Influential can remain! Each player then passes their hand of cards to the left, the first player passes to the left, and the process repeats. The player with the most points when all cards have been selected becomes Mayor and wins the game.

To make Succession: Desperate Times as good as I know it can be, I need to get it into as many hands as possible. Hence, this Print and Play release. Please download, make and test, and pass it along to your friends – the more the merrier!
