Save the world from the Merchant of Death! The "merchant of death" is an infamous dealer of illegal arms whose business dealings have reaped him great profits, but have also put weapons into the hands of nefarious criminals throughout the world. In Gunrunners, players lead their own teams of international agents who pursue the Merchant of Death and confiscate his weapons. Will your agents succeed in bringing the Merchant of Death to justice?
Gunrunners is a quick (30 minutes) strategic area control game that is easy to play, yet contains a fair amount of depth for a "filler" game. The game often culminates in a close victory whose outcome is not decided until the end. During the game, players use the various abilities of their "special operatives" to quickly alter the balance of power, leading to a high level of player interaction and unexpected twists of fate.
