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.

I hear the manual is politically charged

Yes it is. Objetivism and treating the indigenous people as nuisances at best and bandits at worst abound. Please don’t discuss politics in our Revolution game. Thanks.

I want to play

I’m looking for 3-4 players, PMs not necessary. Post ##Viva la Revolución! if you want to join. Frankenfreak, GutterOwl and StashAugustine already expressed interest, so they have a spot reserved if they want. Rest of the players will be decided at random, preference given to people not on my other game.

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


Short rules explanation, by Tekopo.

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

After the 1898 battle at El Plomo Sonora,
most of the Papago tribes fled to Arizona.

Black Card: Assassination Pancho's Coffee

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.

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

Both of these are double-sided, and are available in every game.

Buy Banco de Sonora and speculate on Cananea and San Bernardo.

Speaking of Cananea, the link says and points to Cananea Cattle Co. while the Vassal screenshot shows Cananea Consolidated. I'm speculating either way, but you might want to make clear which is actually in the market. Also, El Teatro de los Heroes links to the wrong card.

Do not trust in hope- it will betray you! Only faith and hatred sustain.






Play San Bernado from hand, buy land on it (using one action), buy Carranistas

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


I arrived pretty late yesterday from work and didn't have time to do this before the Witcher 3 finished installing I went to bed.

I'll have a turn up during lunch break.

Oops, nevermind: Stash, you have 5 gold, and need 7 to play San Bernardo. Have I messed up your money count somewhere?

No, I messed up. Instead buy Tohono, then speculate on Mormon Lumber and the casino.

frankenfreak, you have 3 actions.
StashAugustine Speculating on Mormon Lumber gives you absolutely nothing if someone buys it, because it ends the turn in the '0' cost column. You can change your speculation until frankenfreak posts his, if you want.
