About

In Brinkmanship, you play as one of the six representatives in the Six-parties Talks. Using the North-Korean crisis as a pretext, you will wrangle the most diplomatic capital through a myriad of feint, sabotage, and brinkmanship. The player with the highest victory points will be the winner.

 North Korea has just gone nuclear.

All the meetings behind closed doors, all the military exercises in the Yellow Sea, all the bottled-water and camera flashes at press conferences, have prepared the six nations for this moment. The United States has its seventh fleet poised. Russia let loose a quiet yawn in its seat. China is sitting on the fence. South Korea is wringing its hands. Japan builds up its military

No one knows what’s in Pyongyang’s mind.

You will be fighting tooth and nail through diplomatic manoeuvres and conniving strategies, albeit silently. International diplomacy is a war without blood and yesterday’s allies might become today’s enemies, as each country has its own agenda even though your goals might look the same at first. 

Your victory would be determined by the victory points you secured in the process of unraveling the North Korea crisis - your ultimate goal is not to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula, but to harness enough diplomatic influence so that you can make the most out of the mayhem.

Basic Game Set
Basic Game Set

In the game, you will represent one of the six parties - North Korea, China, USA, Russia, South Korea and Japan. Not only would you have to try to steer the situation to your benefit, but you would also have to keep an eye out for attempts to obstruct your footsteps - something you would also do to them when the opportunity comes.

World Leader Expansion includes a set of specially designed utility cards for each country to provide players with more tools to unravel the Korean Peninsula Crisis. Each country would receive cards tailored to their theme and playstyle, making the game more challenging and unpredictable.

The North Korea stamps, postcards and posters we offer are hand-made by the people of North Korea, identical items are therefore quite rare. Since each design is unique, the product you receive is likely to differ from the product images.

About Us

Brinkmanship is created by a team of world politics enthusiasts and board game lovers. Although this is our first tabletop campaign, we have been working with other highly praised and experienced board game producers and reviewers throughout the whole process. With the help of our partners and friends, we are able to refine the game contents and artwork designs, as well as production plans as far along as possible before the launch of this campaign.

Risks and challenges

We fully understand the importance of transparency and communication. We will update our progress and the state of production regularly with you. You can also contact us at eugenelo@glos.world or through facebook if you have any questions or suggestions for us!
