Founding Fathers: Offices & Statesmen

The first Founding Fathers expansion adds 36 cards plus solitaire, two-player and other variants.




Ratchet up the fun with this cute little addition to your Founding Fathers base game.

  • New Statesman offer new Election possibilities.
  • New Offices mean more opportunities for Presidents to negotiate and more rewards to bestow.
  • New Actions provide even more ways to vex and surprise the opposition.
  • Plus, now you can play solo games against a virtual opponent or head-to-head in the party vs. party two-player variant.
  • Finally the Historical Factions variant groups like Statesmen together, providing even more real-life flavor.

The additional Statesmen and Offices should be especially useful for 5-6 player games, but may be employed with any number of players. The new Offices mean that the President has more rewards (that is, pork) to distribute and there is a tendency for all the players to be more involved during the Issues phase. Some of the Offices have new features and abilities as well. The new, powerful Action cards add considerable scope for intrigue.

Variants for solitaire and 2-player play mean a lack of opponents doesn't have to stop you. The robot opposition can be quite a challenge.

But there's even more. the Historical Variant gives each player only the Statesmen of his ideology and section. It works with any of the existing scenarios.

Finally there are special new High Tension rules that reflect the torrid situation of the 1860 election. These also work with any of the scenarios/variants.

Best of all, everything fits easily into your existing Founding Fathers package.
