What is 1979: Revolution in Iran about?
A two-player card-driven board game, 1979: Revolution in Iran immerses players in the history of Iran from Mossadegh’s appointment as Prime Minister through his removal in a US/UK-backed coup to the years of control by the Shah of Iran before culminating in the 1979 uprisings that led to the removal of the Shah and the rise of Ayatollah Khomeini.
In a card-driven game (CDG), players take turns playing cards. Players can use these cards to take actions (based on the number printed on the card) or trigger events which helped shape the Iranian social and political landscape.
There are two sides in Iran, reformists and royalists. Each of the major factions that played a major role in shaping modern Iran will be involved.
For players familiar with card-driven games, 1979: Iran in Revolution offers a new twist on its mechanics. Players are not dealt a hand, but instead the cards are placed on the table between them and the next turn’s cards are drafted into their hands. The players will know what cards are in play for their turn, so there will be few surprises. When picking cards, players must decide whether to take an advantageous card or a card that will deny an opponent a specific event.
