The evil emperor has conquered the world, enslaving all those that stood in his way. His rule is malevolent and many wish to overthrow him. But whomever is to challenge him better be strong, as the forces of Chaos are powerful. Only by working together can the subjugated races overthrow the power structures. That's where you find yourself in Uprising: Curse of the Last Emperor, a fully cooperative 4X board game up on Kickstarter now.
