Suffrage

Become a leader of the women’s suffrage movement demanding votes for women!

Be inspired by history or choose a different path as you conduct actions,  grow the movement of supporters and ultimately win the vote!

Suffrage is a card based board game about the iconic and pivotal struggle for women’s suffrage in early 20th century Britain and Ireland. Each player takes the role of one of six historical women, all interesting and important personalities in the movement. 

The rules are brief and easy to understand, and gameplay focuses on the fun and thrilling actions and events that these women and their followers conducted. 

The goal of the game is to acquire a large enough movement and persuade enough male MP’s over at Parliament to support the cause of votes for women. Inspired by real history, real events, real actions and real persons, the game put’s the player in the centre of this important period in history. The game is always empowering, always ending with women winning the vote. It is just a matter of which movement, led by which player, wins it first.  

The game consists of 110 cards and 60 custom suffrage supporter miniatures.

Suitable for ages 12+, the game takes about 30 minutes to play. For 2-5 players.

The game is entirely in British English (and double up proof-read!).
