Rogue State

Watermarked PDF

“Everything is decided by a person’s thoughts and if he is ideologically motivated, there is nothing he cannot do.” - Kim Il-Sung

Rogue State is a solitaire geopolitical conflict simulation where the player assumes the role of the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) immediately after the end of the Korean War.  Your primary objective will be for your regime to survive from 1953 through the year 2030. Your secondary objective will be to maximize adherence to the Juche ideology by progressively achieving national self-reliance and global influence. Juche points are earned by advancing your nation’s military strength, industrial production, nuclear weapons development, and assertively responding to events while minimizing lingering foreign debt.  Victory over your imperialist oppressors will require you to carefully manage scarce resources, strategically evaluate risk, and develop a keen awareness of the interaction between the world situation and your decisions.  Each turn represents approximately seven years on the timeline of the DPRK.

As Supreme Leader of North Korea, you will be responsible for:

  • Managing the state budget to strategically emphasize critical initiatives

  • Building heavy production capacity to fuel your nation's economy

  • Investing in infrastructure, agriculture, and your military

  • Maintaining diplomatic relations with your national allies

  • Intimidating and purging members of your Cabinet to motivate performance and discourage sedition

  • Managing risks associated with world events and critical threats such as revolutions, coups, and foreign military action

  • Negotiating for foreign technology to build your nuclear weapons program

  • Threatening and extorting your imperialist enemies with threats of nuclear force

  • And (if necessary) ordering a preemptive nuclear strike on the West and its puppet allies.

Do you have what it takes to lead your nation to power and prosperity?

Rogue State includes:

     * One 22x17-inch DPRK government ‘map’ (4 part 8.5 x 11 version included)

     * 14 Technology/Event chits 

     * 20 Tracking counters

     * 35 Resource chits

     * 36 Event Cards

     * One Full-Color Rulebook

     * One Turn Summary aid card

     (Note: You will need several six-sided dice and a twelve-sided die to play)

Sirs, I recently purchased this PnP. While quality is good, I have two issues: 1) There needs to be one more card back sheet for each PDF of event cards (2 total). 2) Additionally, the card backs are delineated with circles, squares and triangles for the different eras. There is no way I know of to see which card goes with which back (ie: there is nothing on card fronts to show this). Could you remedy this so I and future owners will know how to put PnP together? I am looking forward to playing but can't under this circumstance. Thanks in advance

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for your feedback. The PDF files for the event cards have been updated to resolve this.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
