Hegemony: the board game

The economy is failing, and a war is waging between the classes.
The labor unions are rallying for human rights and companies aren’t backing down.

Will you side with the workers and fight for social reforms?
Or will you stand with the corporations and their right to set their own policies?

Hegemony is an asymmetric political board game for 2-4 players that puts you in the role of one of the citizen classes in a fictional state. Through careful planning, strategic actions and political maneuvering you will try to increase the power of your class and carry out your agenda. You must create an ideological consensus in society that your values, norms and ideas are indeed best for everybody. Therefore, true hegemony starts with the “hearts and minds” and, in our case, with your actions based on your cards.

Will you be able to become the hegemon?

The game is heavily based on actual academic principles such as Social-Democracy, Neoliberalism, Nationalism and Globalism, and allows players to see their real world applications through engaging gameplay.



Hegemony is an asymmetric card-driven politico-economic game that makes use of mechanics like Resource Management, Hand Management, Voting and Variable Player Powers.


You will decide how Hegemony plays out. Will you build alliances and negotiation to see your party to victory, or will you resort to machiavellian maneuvers to seal the fate of your enemies? As with real-world politics, utilizing either cooperation or antagonism, you can choose how to win.
