Any one of them might be waiting to stab you in the back.

And they're all thinking the same thing about you.

SOCIAL DEDUCTION

Your most important job in Rebellion is figuring out who's with you and who's against you. Are your friends lying? You'd better figure that out fast. Interrogate them, find their tells, and make them pay. Trusting the wrong person might just be the last mistake you ever make.

LOYALTY CARDS - 17

Loyalty cards determine which team you're fighting for. You might be a rebel, a spy, or compromised (a rebel at heart forced to work for the spies).

OCCUPATION CARDS - 27

Occupation cards give you unique abilities. Some let you manipulate loyalties, occupations, or events, and some even let you kill other players.

EVENT CARDS - 36

Event cards are drawn at the start of each player's turn. One might totally derail your opponents' plans while another will just cause some chaos.

 

HOW TO PLAY

SETUP

First, deal each player a face-up Occupation card. Then, whoever gets the Ringleader gets a face-up Rebel card. Finally, deal everyone else a face-down Loyalty card.

GAME PLAY

On each player's turn, starting with the Ringleader's, that player reveals and resolves an Event card then chooses who to recruit. It's then the newly recruited player's turn.

END OF THE GAME

Once enough players have joined the rebellion, count how many players were recruited from each team. Whichever team got more people into the rebellion wins.
