Hegemony: the board game
The nation needs you!
The economy is failing, and a war is waging between the classes.
Will you take control of the middle- or working class and fight for social reforms?
Or do you stand with the corporations and the free market? Or will you help the government to keep it all together?
Hegemony is an asymmetric political board game for 2-4 players that puts you in the role of one of the citizen classes in a fictional state. Through careful planning, strategic actions and political maneuvering you will try to increase the power of your class and carry out your agenda. You must create an ideological consensus in society that your values, norms and ideas are indeed best for everybody. Therefore, true hegemony starts with the “hearts and minds” and, in our case, with your actions based on your cards.
Will you be able to become the hegemon?
The game is heavily based on actual academic principles such as Social-Democracy, Neoliberalism, Nationalism and Globalism, and allows players to see their real world applications through engaging gameplay.
