Cogs and Commissars Product Line

The glorious card game of robot revolution!

Cogs and Commissars at a Glance

  • Cogs and Commissars is a clever card game where players control the means of production.
  • You are an inspirational leader! Take a role like the Artificial Stalintelligence, Simulenin, or Gorobotchev.
  • Play cards to send rival robots to the gulag, promote citizens within your faction, and revitalize production. Once you have enough citizens aligned with your algorithm, launch your glorious robot revolution!
  • Like casual play? Cogs and Commissars provides pre-built faction decks. It’s easy to pick up and play any time.

Most-Equal “Apparatchik” Edition

The deluxe edition of Cogs and Commissars was available only to Kickstarter backers, and directly from Atlas Games while limited supplies last.

It contains neoprene mats for each of the faction leaders, screen-printed wooden citizen counters, a censors-only envelope to prevent unauthorized access to the rules, and a foil-stamped, die-cut, spot-varnished, magnet-closure box.

People’s Pin and Politburo Pin

Two pins were produced as part of the Cogs and Commissars Kickstarter campaign. The People’s Pin is available for ongoing sale, while the Politburo Pin is no longer available.
