Days of Ire can be played solo, cooperatively, or one-version-many. It's 1956 and waves of protests in Poland are once again showing the cracks in the Eastern European communist bloc. Emboldened by these signs, students and intellectuals in Budapest, the Hungarian capital, organise a protest of previously unseen magnitudes. As the communist leadership sweeps in to kill the movement in its tracks, a violent response is provoked, thus sparking the Revolution of the 23rd of October.
Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 is a historically inspired card-driven board game, playable by 1-4 people. It can be played both cooperatively or in a one-versus-many setting. The game has gameplay deeply rooted in its theme and setting, and mechanisms inspired by all-time classics such as Pandemic, Robinson Crusoe, and Twilight Struggle.
It is set during the most explosive days of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, in Budapest, where the fighting was the most fierce.
