BLOC BY BLOC: UPRISING

Rise up! Take back the streets of your city in the ultimate edition of the acclaimed insurrection game. Bloc by Bloc is a cooperative and semi-cooperative tabletop game inspired by 21st century protest movements, riots, and popular uprisings.

Each player controls a faction of revolutionaries—Workers, Students, Neighbors, or Prisoners—struggling together against the police in the streets of a city that changes with each game. Build barricades, clash with police, occupy districts, loot shopping centers, build mutual aid networks, and liberate the city before time runs out and the military arrives!

WHAT’S NEW IN THIS THIRD EDITION OF BLOC BY BLOC?

The 1st edition of Bloc by Bloc was released in 2016 and the 2nd edition was released in 2018, both to critical acclaim. Both printings sold out quickly and the game has continued to attract an ever growing community of fans and players.

Every mechanic has been fine tuned and tweaked, if not completely overhauled in this thoroughly revised and expanded 3rd edition. Bloc by Bloc: Uprising is a synthesis of the best elements from each of the previous two editions. It also introduces some crucial new mechanics and components such as mutual aid centers, smarter and more dangerous police, a streamlined action system that allows for deeper strategy, a narrative choice-driven Liberation deck, variable win conditions related to building and defending liberated zones, and last but not least, meetings!

Where is Bloc by Bloc Manufactured?

And why is 3rd edition cheaper than previous editions when costs are skyrocketing worldwide?

Unlike 1st and 2nd editions, Bloc by Bloc: Uprising was not manufactured in the US. It was manufactured in China with a vetted and experienced printer that we are grateful to have worked with. Their level of quality surpasses anything we have been able to accomplish with previous editions. Even with higher ocean freight costs, we are still able to save some money with this change. We want to pass that savings on to you and make this game as accessible as possible. The MSRP of 1st and 2nd edition was $60 but we are pleased to announce that the MSRP for Bloc by Bloc: Uprising is only $54. You can read more about our decision to manufacture overseas in the project status section of the Gamefound campaign page.

Special thanks to all crowdfunding backers and everyone who has supported this project over the years.
