Rise Up is a board game about building people power and winning together to create social justice—even when the cards are stacked against us. All players are on the same team, collaborating to build a movement and fight an opponent that is trying to crush your efforts. You'll have to strategize creatively about the actions your movement takes to win. Get inspired about the social change possible to make the world you want to live in, and learn tactical skills for how we can get there.
Rise Up comes with two versions in the box! Rise Up Standard is a strategy game great for game nights and experienced game players. Rise Up Simplified is quicker to learn and has simpler rules for younger kids, less experienced game players, and educational settings. Everything you need for both versions comes in the same box.
