BLOC BY BLOC: THE INSURRECTION GAME

Bloc by Bloc is a semi-cooperative strategy board game inspired by 21st century urban insurrection. The game features hidden  agendas, deep strategy, area control, asymmetrical player abilities, and a special method for randomly generating billions of unique city layouts.

LET’S START A RIOT!

At first, protests against the corrupt economic system and violent police started off small…

The government cracks down, but their brutality backfires. Thousands of people from all walks of life take to the streets in solidarity. The city is engulfed in a vibrant popular rebellion, bringing everyday life to a standstill. Each player controls a faction of revolutionaries—Workers, Students, Neighbors, or Prisoners—fighting against the authorities to liberate a city that changes with each game. To win, you must cooperate with other factions to defeat the State while carefully balancing your own secret agenda. Build barricades, clash with riot cops, occupy buildings, loot shopping centers, and liberate the city before time runs out and the military arrives!

PLAYERS:

2-4

AGES:

14+

TIME:

120-180 MINUTES

INCLUDES 10 SCENARIO MINI EXPANSION!

The 10 scenario mini expansion includes 10 unique insurrection scenarios and 4 special district tiles. Each scenario forces factions to re-think existing strategies in order to achieve new insurrectionary goals, often under unfamiliar conditions or while facing increasingly hostile police.

“This is the first game I’ve ever seen like this. This is a completely different theme than I’m used to seeing in any other game.”

“There are a lot of things I really like about this game. The mechanisms are tight and focused. I like how the AI works with the police forces moving about the board… [It] has a multilayered level of gaming that will keep it coming off your game shelf for you and your friends to enjoy.”
