Preorders Open for Portal Games’ 51st State Master Set

51st state

Your goal is to build a new State in this post-apocalyptic world. Whether you command merciless Mutants or brave New Yorkers, your aim is always simple and clear – conquer new lands, incorporate new regions, and destroy everyone who is of no value. How will you achieve this? It’s pretty simple – the highest score wins the game. Pretty novel, huh?

Portal Games is currently running a preorder campaign for the revitalization of their hit card game 51st State in the form of the 51st State Master Set.  51st State is a competitive game that takes place in the unforgiving, post-apocalyptic work of Neuroshima Hex.  In the game, players take control of a faction such as New York, Appalachian Federation, Mutants Union, or the Merchants Guild and, by levying the power of his faction, build a new state: a 51st state.
