Description Edit | History

The world you know no longer exists. There is no government. No army. No civilization. The United States have collapsed. And now, thirty years after the war started, new powers finally try to take control over the ruined country, try to establish a new order, try to control others and create a new country, a new State: the 51st State.

51st State is a card game in which players control one of the four powers (mutants, traders, New Yorkers and Appalachians) and try to build their very own new country. Players put new locations into the game, they hire leaders, and send people to work in buildings to gain resources and new skills.

Every card in 51st State can be put into play in three different ways. You can invade a location to gain many resources once, or you can sign a contract with this location to gain one resource every turn, or you can attach the location to your State so you can use its skill. One card, three possibilities. Lots of decisions and choices that matter.

10 Teaching Script for 51st State
This is the script I use to teach the game. I print it 2-up, double-sided and then fold it in half so it'll fit in the box. It's just an rtf file, but you can save it as another format and make it look pretty. I use it in conjunction with the "51st State Ref Card (revised)" player aid posted by ScottE. I based the script on both the rule book that came with my edition and the FAQ here on BGG. If you notice any mistakes or omissions, just post here and I'll update the script.

8 51st State upgrade (more like New Era)
Print the .doc file, stick the arrows on the cards : the 5 on action cards, the 4 on Feature cards, and the 3 on open and closed production cards. You also got missing tokens, 10VP tokens and 7 alternate tokens per faction. Stick them on cardboard. You will need New Era rules to use this upgrade.
