Machine Mind

A Game of Human Subjugation by Machine Overlords in a Dystopian Future




Out of every billion humans born, only one pays the penultimate sacrifice for the good of humankind. You have just been selected.

You are now joined to the Machine Mind. You are a Peer. Welcome.

As a Peer, you are part of a global communications network. Your human intuition has been granted computer processing power the equivalent of millions of brains just like the one you used to have. You can see everything, be everywhere. You have given up your right to live a normal human life, but you can now see into the lives of trillions.

All for the greater good. Or is it? Maybe you have your own ideas about what is "good" for humanity.

Through their neural backups and biological implants, you will subjugate the very minds of people who were once just like you, manipulating them to infiltrate and influence important organizations at the highest levels in your bid for domination over all of mankind.

But one exceptionally willful human is wise to your plans, impervious to your subjugation. He has no implants, and he has been suspicious of you from the start. He is the one human who stands outside of your reach, untouched and untouchable by the Machine Mind. He will attempt to thwart you.

And you are not the only Peer with such aspirations — others like you are pursuing goals of their own. Only the most skilled subjugator and manipulator among you will shed the final remnants of your humanity and become the Machine Mind itself.

(Recommended for ages 14 and up. Game includes depictions of violence, mild profanity, and references to a posthuman reality which may cause certain young people to confront the relative insignificance of their own lives.)

Why buy this?

Machine Mind is a fun majority game with a theme that is very rarely used in boardgames, and proof to me that there are interesting games to be found in print-on-demand.

  • Rich and flavorful dystopian theme.
  • Random game setup and fresh, unique turn order mechanics.
  • Optional rules add more luck or more strategy.


  • This game contains a premium upgrade called UV Coating that makes the printed components more durable.
  • This game contains a premium upgrade where the printed components will be embossed with a linen texture.
  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
