On the 9th of November, 1918, the cold autumn air in Berlin is full of tension. The workers are planning to strike and since the city is full of troops, they do not know if they will survive that day. Three hours later, the German monarchy does not exist anymore, and the first German democracy is born.

Weimar: The Fight For Democracy attempts to recreate the political and economic tension within the Weimar Republic of 1920-1933. In this tense card-driven game, players take on the roles of various political parties trying to win elections and enact laws through their government.

On each turn, the parties play one agenda which will define their strategy on their turn. Party goals are asymmetrical and contradictory. While democratic parties earn points for stability and equality, non-democratic parties score for political unrest and coups.

There are various political parties which are playable, and players must balance public opinion alongside control on the ground to become the head of Germany's political sphere!

The player who fulfills the goals of their political party, wins! The game should play in 5-6 hours, and Compass Games have stated that Weimar: The Fight For Democracy will be "80% political and 20% military". There's no further information as of yet, but you can keep up to date through the Compass Games website.
