Protospiel - Milwaukee 2016 includes:

Council Fire by Kevin L. Jones

The island nation of Bittersweet is controlled by three councils: The Peace Council, the Economics Council, and the War Council. Players are governors, each in control of a district. Districts grow with population each round. The governors also influence the council tracks through a dice placement mechanic. Bittersweet has a sordid past with frequent incursions into civil war. This occurs when the peace track and the war track are at opposite ends, causing a financial crash and loss of life. How will you govern your district? What population will gain you victory? How will you influence the tracks? Council Fire plays 3-4 in about 45 minutes.
