It’s Spring, 1927. While some Americans dance the Charleston and drink bootlegged liquor, the Mississippi Delta faces a flood of epic proportions. If battered river levees collapse, everything important to you will be washed away. Rising Waters is a cooperative, variable player power, area control, set collection game where players experience a natural disaster and man-made obstacles through an African American perspective.
In the game, players confront two forces–racism from white landowners and the power of nature. Persevere by drawing on your community’s courage and strength from your family, church, music, farming, and education. Can you manage the rising waters to stay alive?
RISING WATERS is a 2-4 player game of the strength of community and methods of resistance suitable for both classroom use and casual play from Central Michigan University Press.
