Description Edit | History

From Pyramid's Industry News, October 10, 2003:

Ideology is a 2-5 player game where each player symbolizes one of the 20th Century's most powerful Ideologies -- Capitalism, Islamic Fundamentalism, Imperialism, Communism, or Fascism. Starting with one global region completely under its sway, each Ideology attempts to influence and control the independent regions of the earth.

Each Ideology will use economic, cultural, and military influence to bring countries under control. If a player has influence in a country in which you have influence, you can both engage in economic, cultural, and military conflict (depending on your diplomatic stance toward each other) to knock out your opponent's influence. You can also purchase Advancements like Propaganda, Tactics, etc. to make it harder for an opponent to conflict you or to make it easier for you to influence a country.

The goal is to posses a Global Influence of 12 or more.

Components:
12" × 24" color world paper map (used as reference mostly.Deleted from the second edition)
5 Ideology cards
43 Region cards
225 Influence cards
85 Advancement cards
125+ counters

2 Tuckboxes for 1st Edition
This file is a collection of three tuckboxes, for the region cards, the advancement cards, and the influence cards. I created one box for all the influence cards so they could fit back into the insert. These boxes were created using cpforbes' tuckbox generator (located at http://www.cpforbes.net/tuckbox/tuckbox.cgi) and the images located here at the Geek.
