"In the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another." For too long, Mesa has been ruled with the iron fist of dictatorship. A small band of freedom fighters attempt a revolution.
This game uses both sets of Mesa card decks, the regular Mesa deck and the Mesa Grown-ups deck. The opposing players, or teams, choose which deck they will be playing with: the "Rebel" cards or the "Dictator" cards.
As the Rebel team attempts to overthrow the ruthless dictatorship of the Grown-ups, the Grown-ups team tries to squash this insolent rebellion. If you are playing this game with your kids, it might be fun to reverse roles. Let them play the Mesa Grown-ups cards.
