Illuminatus is a conspiracy themed strategy board game set in the modern world. Players take on the role of one of the mysterious Illuminati – old rich powerful families and interest groups that sit behind the scenes manipulating the events of the world. Things don’t just happen, you as an illuminatus make them happen and all according to your master plan. Players are secretly embedded within a faction each with their own hidden agendas and goals to achieve, all the while competing with others to amass piles of gold. Use special abilities, secret meetings, pawns, organisations, technology, research and other tools to achieve your goals from a safe deniable distance. Perform false flag attacks to destabilise regions around the world and replace uncooperative governments with puppets to do your bidding. Be careful though as every action has implications and can expose you to the world. Become too (in)famous and you are in trouble, blame it on others and you might just get away with it. The next cataclysmic world event is looming and will eventually doom us all so move fast else it will be too late to claim what is rightfully yours. You are the conspiracy!
