The perfect game to play November 5, Gunpowder Treason is a game based on Guy Fawkes' attempt to blow up Parliament in 1605. This in itself is a little spooky, but what's really spooky is that the box says that Aztral Games designed it for Astra Fireworks Company in the UK! It's a fairly simple game: move one space on your turn and possibly draw a card. The object is to be the first to get your four barrels of gunpowder at the edges of the board to Parliament at the center of the board - you can only carry one at a time. The board has lots of squares, some with text on them and some with tunnels for faster (but riskier) movement. About a fifth of the spaces are of each player color, and the other fifth are white. If you end your turn on a white space or your own color, your turn is over. If you end on another color, draw a card. These range from being good for you ("Take another turn") to potentially bad for you or even for an opponent ("Counterinsurgency agents raid ..."). Sometimes games end with Parliament being blown up, but more often one player simply has the last uncaptured piece on the board. This is actually kind of reassuring, in a real-world sense.
