“The Glorious Dear Leader is dead, long live the Glorious Dear Leader.”
Unbeknownst to the general populace of Sovitopia, the Glorious Supreme Leader who has ruled the nation for 50 years since the revolutiom, lies clinically dead from a heartache, in the private hospital attached to his palatial residence.
In the game Politbureau, you play one of the five factions that are represented in the politbureau, who are vying for delegates of the People’s Congress. The Congress in turn will elect the new Glorious Supreme Leader when his death is announced after the succession has been determined, and a suitable period of national mourning has elapsed (~10 turns).
By using your commisars and undertaking projects, both secret and public, and playing your espionage and event cards you will hope to manipulate the will of the public and party to crown yourself as the undisputed new Glorious Supreme Leader of Sovitopia.
The five factions are-
- The Intelligence Service Industry
- The Reformation Faction
