Want to relive the fun and fury of the WTO mayhem? Want to take the role of the Law Enforcement Officials or the People In The Streets? Well now you can.

The Battle For Seattle is a war game brought to us by DTP games designer Citizen X. You can grab the 96 unit counters, 11x17" area map of downtown Seattle, and the 3-4 pages of rules and charts right off his site for free. Simply print out and play.


The rules play heavily on media exposure and the effects it has on both sides of this event. This is not your normal attack versus defend style game, though there are still elements of that. Instead this game covers the problems crowd control, media spin, mob cohesion and resource timing.

This is a great microgame that will offer you up both an educational and entertaining look deeper into what goes on during civil unrest.
