rewriting editing my review of Z-Man Games’ new release Junta: Viva El Presidente and it is now live for your reading pleasure. It’s a good one, a fun 30-45 minute game that encourages bad behavior and betrayal among friends with a minimal rules set that’s more concerned about letting you have fun than being clever. It’s effectively a modernization of the original 1978 Junta, but this one is actually playable and way more fun. Also, it’s one of those games that offers an experience you can’t get from video games- nothing beats looking your pal dead in the eyes and informing him that despite his generous bribe, your militia along with a coalition of other willing players will be arriving at his stately villa to enact a little regime change.
