To go quickly is foolish. To go slowly is prudent. Not to go; that is wisdom.




Pax Porfiriana? What’s that?

Pax Porfiriana – Latin for "The Porfirian Peace" – refers to the 33-year reign of dictator Porfirio Díaz, who ruled Mexico as an absolute dictatorship until toppled by the 1910 Revolution.

It’s also a knife fight of a boardgame from 2012 and I have been playing it non-stop for the last couple of weeks. It has an original scoring system, it’s pretty nasty for how innocent all of it looks, and you get to play as manly bearded historical figures who split their time toadying to Porfirio and plotting his downfall. It also has Mexican bandits, nationalization of companies and the worst manual known to man.

During the game, the players will have 4 chances of toppling Porfirio, the way of doing it depending on the political regimen at that moment. Maybe Porfirio is firmly in charge, and the player will peacefully succeed him after he gets ill if he’s Loyal enough. Or maybe Mexico is in a state of Anarchy, and the player with the biggest Revolutionary support will be the one to claim power.

In the end there are various roads to victory, and the job of the players is not only to amass political power, but also manufacture the situation where they can bring that power to bear.



So how does it play, exactly?

In short: during their turns the players will get assets from a central market in a Dutch Auction (stuff gets cheaper as time passes). These assets could range from money-generation Enterprises, Armies, Partners that give the players special skills, cards to shut down opposing assets, etc…

By playing the cards on their tableau, or by having sabotage cards played against them, the players accumulate 4 types of Victory Points: Loyalty (Porfirio’s favor), Revolution (influence over the downtrodden masses), Command (support from the army) and Outrage (sympathy from the USA). When a Topple card is played, the players compare the relevant VP totals, and if they surpass their rivals by a given margin, they win. For example, if Mexico is under Martial Law, the player with the biggest support in the army (Command points) will win, no matter who is the most Loyal to Porfirio at that point.

A fun part of this is that most of the ways of harming one player also give them victory points, so it’s a fine line to walk.

The most recent rules I can find are here. They are better than the official ones, but ask if you have any doubts, because without having the cards in front of you it’s still kinda difficult to visualize.

There is a Vassal Module, so I can pimp out the thread with pictures of mustachioed men, but in general the cards are very busy and not really clear. I’ll probably end up typing a short description of each card in the market or in play.

I hear the manual is politically charged

Yes it is. Please don’t discuss politics in our Revolution game. Thanks.

I want to play

I’m looking for 4 players, PMs not necessary. Post ##Viva la Revolución! if you want to join.

How to play! 98% Ripped off Tekopo's previous game, because I'm lazy.

Turn Order

1. Do 3 Actions: See below.

2. Discard Headline Cards in the 0 Market Column

3. Restore Market: Slide cards down and replace missing cards from the draw pile.

4. Take Income: 1 gold per cube of your colour on any card (from extorting, enterprises, connections and loyalist income).

Topple Procedure

When a Topple is purchased and played:
1. Choose to use topple bonus or not.
2. Starting with the player to the left of the purchaser:
a. Choose to flip Hacendado.
b. Choose to discard modifiers.
3. Diaz has 2 of current regime prestige + the prestige of the two players with the lowest prestige in that category.
4. Anyone who's prestige exceeds this value topples.
5. If multiple people topple, the one with highest money wins.

Actions
(3 actions per turn, 2 if jailed)

- Play card in hand: Pay the cost on the card, then play Orange cards on your own/opponent enterprise, Black cards on yourself/opponents, Enterprises/Partners within your card plateau, Troops either on your/opponent enterprise (pay cost depending on method of transportation) or on your Hacendado as private army (only if Hacendado committed, requires specific colour, pay cost depending on transportation icon).

- Buy Market card (2nd buy expends two actions instead of 1): If Headline, play either for event or Status Quo, if Topple, perform topple procedure, anything else goes in hand. Hand limit is 5, card buys can't exceed this limit.

- Buy and play public card: Pay the cost and immediately place public card on your tableau.

- Sell card: Receive number of coins equal to current economy.

- Redeploy troop card: Pay cost to move Troops or redeploy in place. Deploying/redeploying removes unrest equal to firepower of the unit. Redeploying in place has no gold cost and removes unrest.

- Buy land (costs 2 actions): Pay gold equal to the number of cubes on the ranch/plantation to place an additional cube.

- Police: Spend 3 money to remove 1 disc of unrest from an enterprise or get out of jail. You can also remove 1 disc of Unrest paying 0 gold if there are troops in the enterprise, friendly or not.

- Speculate: Place a cube on a card in the market: if card is bought by an opponent, opponent pays you rather than the bank.

Example Card
The name of the card has a link to its picture In the game I'll be using that, the text below is so you can see some examples of what the stuff on the card means.

For troop cards, Foot/Mule/Railway/Etc refers to the cost of deployment/redeployment.
=> is used as short-hand for regime change.
Victim means the type of prestige that the victim receives.
Double sided cards will be specified within the description.

pre:
Troop: Rebel Troops Los Colorados
Colour:   Red  Foot: 2  Region: Chihuahua
Strength: 1    Mule: 3
Cube:     None Rail: 6
Special: When first played => Anarchy.
Place an unrest on the other enterprises in the District
Orozquista "Los Colorados" (Red-Flagger) rebels conquered Chihuahua in 1912,
 promising (but never delivering) land reform.

Orange Card: Natives Tohono O'odham
Cost:     0    Region: US
Unrest:   3    Victim: Outrage
Steal:    1

Effect: Assassinate a Partner. Two actions required unless
under US Intervention regime. X = Cost to play of the partner.

In 1916, the US Military Intelligence Corps infiltrated Pancho Villa's
band with two Japanese-Mexican agents acting as houseboys.
The agents poisoned Pancho's coffee with a 3-day poison, yet he suffered no ill-effects.

Enterprise: Ranch Cananea Cattle Co.

Special: If in play: Your troops: Firepower 3 and immune to strife.
During Toppling (Mexican Resistance): Discard to +1 to Diaz Outrage.

Trained in Paris in modern artillery, General Angeles won battles for Madero,
Carranza and Villa. A principled man who contradicted his superiors and consistently
refused orders he found immoral. Despondent over the never ending bloodshed, he went
AWOL and lived in a cave before being betrayed and executed.

Headline: Bull 
Diaz Proposes Reciprocity Treaty
Would lower tariffs, stimulate trade and build a railroad between the two nations.
Effect: Free Trade: All Monopolies in play discarded. => Pax Porfiriana
Strife: Red/Green
Public Cards
Both of these are double-sided, and are available in every game.

pre:
Public Card: Teddy Roosevelt
Prestige: Outrage   Cost: 18
Effect: => U.S. Intervention, Red/Blue Strife.

U.S. President from 1901 to 1909 who pursued a vigorous foreign policy known
as the Big Stick Policy. In 1910, he demanded U.S. Intervention in Mexico to stop
'Chronic Wrongdoing'.

OR:

Public Card: Porfirian Army
Prestige: Command   Cost: 18
Effect: => Martial Law

Prestige: Revolution Cost: 16
Effect: Strife Red/Green

Archbishop Gillow of Mexico City, inspired by the papal Rerum Novarum, created the 
Catholic Worker's Circle (1906). It promoted 'God, Morality, Work, and Union'.

OR:

Public Card: Catholic Church
Prestige: Command    Cost: 16

Does extorting an opponent's enterprise give you just one extra income or all the income of that enterprise?

Also I found this link in the Living Rule Book really handy for giving tips on how the game works.

Just one income.

If the income of that enterprise ever drops to zero while you're extorting it, it'll be destroyed completely (usually the result of depression).

[edit] you should see this:



Also, is my understanding of the rules correct:

If it were my turn, I could take Rio Yaqui Dam and Power for free, for one action. I can later play it for 1 action and 10 gold, and it would give me 1 Loyalty VP. I can upgrade it to a ship connection for 1 action and 3 gold, which increases its income by 1. Also, it grants me as much additional income as the number of Sonora ranches and plantations I own. It does not give me the Loyalty VP or the income while it has Unrest on it. Is this all correct?

This is great, thanks. I'll probably post the market picture at the end of each turn.

Regarding the rules, 2 minor points: The Rio Yaqui would give you extra income for each Sonoran ranch and plantation in play, no matter who the owner is, plus 1 extra gold while under Pax Porfiriana. About the second part, in general a card with Unrest on may as well not exist.

Glossary posted:

Unrest Disk – Red disks representing Unrest are placed on enterprises by the play of certain Headlines, Orange Cards, and troops. If your enterprise has one or more Unrest, none of its Income, Extortion, Prestige, or Connection cubes earn gold, and its Prestige, abilities (e.g. the Chain Railroad ability), and Connection upgrade, as well as the Prestige on occupying troops, are inactivated. Remove Unrest with police actions or troops.

Underscoring some stuff I didn't know and that isn't obvious.
