Accessories Federation: President of the Senate Meeple
The galaxy is organized into many coalitions that govern multiple solar systems and worlds. Your system wants to join one of these federations. Your fledgling empire is small, but that will not stop you. It is your job to impress the petty bureaucrats who control access to the Federation that your tiny government should be taken seriously. Becoming a full member would give you advantages over your rivals. But yours is not the only delegation that has set its sights on joining the Federation. So, the contest begins! You have 5 years to prove that you can be a productive member. During these 5 years, you must make the most of your opportunities to impress them. Sometimes you may be forced to work together with your rivals to provide funding for special projects. So, it can be helpful to make friends, but you must stay one step ahead of them. At the end of the 5 years, only one new member will be selected - the one with the most prestige!

Federation is an interactive Eurogame with an innovative double-sided worker placement mechanic. Every time you place a worker, you must decide if that worker will vote in favor of legislation that helps your cause or provides funding for local improvement projects. Every action is critical. At the end of the year, the votes are counted, and whichever legislation becomes law offers points for the players who have the highest level of influence in that area. Players must keep an eye on each opponent to see the places where they are strong or weak. Making sure that the areas you specialize in will score at the end of the game is critical to your success. Plan your strategy and execute it with the proper timing, and that spot in the Federation will be secured!

The Deluxe Edition includes all of the bonus content found on the Federation Kickstarter. See the components in the image.

Delicious worker placement!

Exceptional worker placement game, hinging around a political framework reminiscent of Terraforming Mars: Turmoil. Lots of options for actions and many paths to victory, with tight mechanics, smooth turns, and spectacular table presence!

Awesome game

An awesome worker placement game with multi use workers and so much depth with every placement.This game has so much replayability where every game is different so you need a different strategy every play. This is my favourite game purchased this year!

Jonathan Neudorf

Great fun! Played it 4 weeks in a row, and as soon as we're finished the game - we can't wait to play it again! The game has some crunch to it and a good amount of player interaction. It's currently our favorite game of 2023.
We play it at 3 players and it takes us about 90 minutes to play.
