Bloc By Bloc: The Insurrection Game by Out of Order Games want you to fight for your right to party!
Bloc by Bloc is set to hit shelves in November and publisher Out of Order Games is taking pre orders now. I strongly suggest you check it out. Totally not telling you what to do though. Sheyuhh! as if I’d dream of telling YOU what to do.
Ok, so maybe the revolution will not be televised. Maybe Rage Against The Machine was wrong and I actually will do what you tell me? Yup, Ole Zach and Tommy were wrong and it turns out I’m just a normal schlupp, taking orders like everyone else. If only there were a way out….. OH SNAP! Out of Order Games is having none of that crap with it’s soon to be released Bloc by Bloc: The Insurrection Game. So throw on your favourite Public Enemy, Black Flag or Neil Young, cover your face with a bandana and get out there to fight the man!
Yes, you control feisty, little, angry cube men; the urban forces taking the streets back, one bloc at a time. Blocs are flipped randomly, meaning every game will feel new. Players will have to work together to beat the state but in the end there is only one winner. Here’s what Out of Order Games has to say about it,
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…Build barricades, clash with riot cops, occupy buildings, loot shopping centers, and liberate the city…
So as your group of idealistic hooligans moves bloc by bloc, you’ll have the opportunity to pick up cool gear to aid in your cause. Things like fireworks, gas masks and the medic kit will all help you in your effort to hold the police at bay.
Bloc by Bloc features some fun artwork and the game mechanics are tight and focused. This is a game to be played over and over with all your anarchistic, neo-liberal minded philosophy 101 friends! There’s also an expansion pack which adds new scenarios, goals and layers to the game. If you’re looking for the ultimate insurrection hard on…and who’s kidding who? We’re all looking for an insurrection hard on…. this game is a real contender.
