game will be postponed to a later date.

Here is a short description of Illuminati Endgame 2012:

There are two opposing teams in this game. On one side are the “Free
Peoples” players who can only win or lose together. Their main goal is
to survive. On the other side are the “Illuminati” players who must
both the defeat the “Free Peoples” players and lastly also their
team members to win the game individually. Illuminati players need to
get as much power as possible. Nobody knows who belongs to which side at
the start of the game.

Each player starts up in a province on a world map and can then expand
his civilization by gaining new provinces or building cities. He can
also upgrade his technology level. At the end of each turn calamities
may occur. A player gets "power points" which he can use for his actions
or save his provinces from the effects of these calamities, so a player
must strike a balance between these two.

The idea is to figure out on which team you belong and act accordingly.
Illuminati players need to be aggressive while Free Peoples players just
need to survive and can usually be peaceful.

It's a tactical game with only a very small element of luck (the
calamities at the end of each turn), so it becomes kind of like chess to
plan your moves.
