Pleased to meet you, we hope you love this game!


A fun social experience. Great for kids and adults alike.

This game begins with each player choosing their Country (color) from the deck of cards. After selecting their Country they are given the Town, Metropolis, Capitol, and Bomb cards for their respective Country (color).

Each player lays the Town, Metropolis, and Capitol cards in front of them in that order. The rest of the deck is shuffled and each player draws cards equal to the number of players. Each player should now be holding three-six Attack cards and their own Country’s (color’s) Bomb card. If a player is knocked out of play the same number of cards should still be drawn by the remaining players.

Someone should be chosen to be the score keeper. This person will keep track of the HP (hit points) of each Country’s Town, Metropolis, and Capital. It is recommended that they use paper and pen/pencil to keep track.

Red Targets


A player attacks by choosing another player to target. - Say (Red) chooses to attack (Purple).

(Red) may choose any card from his or her own hand to attack.
(Red) may only attack (Purple's) smallest living city (Town < Metro < Capitol).
If (Purple’s) Town has lost all if its HP then (Purple’s) Metropolis would be his smallest living city.
So on and so forth.

BUT! If (Red) has any purple colored cards, they can choose that card to attack any of (Purple’s)
Cities regardless of size or health.

Once (Red) chooses a card (Purple) then chooses a card from his or her own hand to defend.
If (Red) chooses to attack with a 7(Green) and (Purple) then chooses to defend with a 3(Orange)
(Purple) takes 4 damage.

BUT! If a target chooses the attacker’s Country (color) to defend with, they have a chance to
deal damage to the attacker.

THUS! If (Red) chooses to attack with a 7(Green) and (Purple) then chooses to defend with a
9(Red), (Red) would take 2 damage to their smallest living city.

After each play the cards go into the played pile. After each round (after all players have played)
all players draw from the shuffled stack. If there are not enough cards in the shuffled stack,
the played stack is shuffled and cards are then drawn.

TIP: Once a player plays their own Country’s (color’s) Bomb card any player may later
draw that card giving them the ability to attack that player’s Capitol with that Bomb card.

Product Information
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
