Our mother land needs you! The economy is bleeding and internal and external enemies are threatening us. The general secretary has stated that without an end to economic backwardness, the advanced countries will crush us. As members of the politburo, it is your responsibility to agree on a five-year plan and together drive its execution. The general secretary trusts you to set aside your personal objective and stand united - deviants will be purged!
Politburo combines the classical elements of deduction and voting. You need to agree on a plan but all players have their own objectives that may coincide or collide and you must carefully seek your allies. But there is a third element as well: the purge, which allows you not only to thwart other players' objectives but also to blame someone else. All this for 5-10 players but only 18 cards!

like chess and RISK, I moved on to explore "American" games like Diplomacy and Civilization and then
"Euro games" like Settlers and Tigris & Euphrates. Combining my game experience with my history
interest and IT and quality profession, I have entered the exciting world of board game design
