People Power: Insurgency in the Philippines, 1983-1986


You can say that the story of "People Power" in the Philippines started with one airplane arriving in Manila and ended with another one departing. On August 21, 1983, exiled opposition leader Benigno Aquino Jr. returned from the United States to his homeland. He expected to be arrested, but also fatefully contemplated, as his plane approached Manila, the possibility that he might not survive the homecoming. Tragically, moments after disembarking, he was shot dead by a conspirator on the airport tarmac.

People Power is Volume XI in the COIN Series of games that uses similar rules to cover a variety of modern and premodern insurgencies.

People Power is a 1-3 player board game depicting insurgent and counterinsurgent (COIN) conflict in the Philippines during the mid-1980s. People Power depicts the events of a 5-year period during which a violent insurgency and an active pro-democracy movement led to the "People Power" Revolution of 1986. Each player takes the role of one of three Factions seeking to run Philippine affairs: the Marcos Government, the insurgent New People’s Army (NPA), and the nonviolent Reformers. Players use faction-specific actions and historical events to achieve their Faction’s aims. A deck of cards regulates turn order, events, victory checks, and other processes. Additional rules can run Non-player Factions, enabling solitaire or 2-player games.
