Guide to GMT Games's COIN Series
Complexity of game relative to the other COIN games. (Note to new players: Even the easiest COIN is a jump up from a medium eurogame.)
Availability shows all printings, and current availabaility status, including upcoming release/reprint dates.
Setting and playable factions, including blurb on each faction, including win conditions, so you can see if the game fits your historical interests.
Approximate duration, including variant shorter ways to play, including deck construction changes.
Any extra information that mechanically differentiates this title from others in the series, especially as the title differs from Andean Abyss (since that is the baseline used in some of the rulebooks).
For those new to the series, here are some terms used to describe win conditions for different factions:
Control represents quantitative dominance. This faction has more pieces than all others' put together.
Support represents popular Support (influence) by the ruling faction.
Opposition represents popular Opposition (influence) to the ruling faction, in favor of a certain insurgent faction.
After the list of main games and the COIN Game Series item, look for expansions, then "Unpublished Prototypes" for a look at what we know about possible future titles in the series. (Note: If a game is officially on it's way to being a title, it should receive a P500 listing, and an official Geek page, at which point I'll delete the old "Unpublished Prototype" entry and add the full entry.
Please offer any suggestions for improvement as I intend for this to be an ongoing resource for new-to-COIN players.
