Callout: The Gathering

Will you manage to start the Revolution or find yourself called out?

This is no joke, it is.... CALLOUT: THE GATHERING


Brief Overview

1. Each player represents a "clique"

2. The "clique" has a variety of win conditions:

3. Cliques have decks composed of varying Factions:

All decks contain one "race card." The race card can be played once per game to block the attempt to play another card

Playset contents

  1. A d20 dice used to measure "rep".
    • The current "rep" level is the number face up on the die.
    • All cliques begin with an initial rep score of 5.
    • Successful events add 5 rep.
    • Failed events deplete 1 rep.
    • Having an organizer "called out" depletes 2 rep.
    • Being "called out" with no organizers depletes 3 rep.
    • When your rep reaches zero, you lose the game.
  2. Event cards. Certain conditions must be fulfilled in order to be played.
    • Four events must be hosted before a clique can attempt to declare revolution.
    • Events are associated with Organizer factions / qualities.
    • Events are also used to boost rep.
  3. Space cards.
    • Space cards grant special boons when entering play. However, spaces can be reclaimed by other cliques.
    • Every space controlled by your clique increases your rep.
    • The factions a Space are aligned with determine what Organizers you may summon from them.
    • Losing control of spaces lowers your rep score.
  4. Tactics cards.
    • Used to attack, protect, or boost resources.
    • Generally require the sacrifice of allies, rep or discard of cards to activate.
    • Generally require Organizers with specific factions / qualities to be in play to activate.
  5. Organizer cards. Organizers offer passive bonuses.
    • The maximum number of organizers you may control are the number of spaces you control + 1.
    • They are used to host events or call out other cliques.
    • They generate rep and help recruit numbers to cliques.
    • However, they can be "called out" and returned to the clique's hand or deck, removed from play, or even be recruited into joining a different clique.
  6. Ally tokens. These represent the fighting force of your clique.
    • Allies are represented with beans, buttons, beads, or any other generic token.
    • Every clique gains one ally token per turn until the number of allies is greater than or equal to the clique's rep.
    • Ally tokens can be used to populate spaces / events, or removed to activate certain effects.
    • Enemy Allies can sometimes be converted, joining your Allies.
