About 51st State
The world you know no longer exists. There is no government. No army. No civilization. The United States has collapsed, and now thirty years after the war started, new powers finally try to take control over the ruined country, try to establish a new order, try to control others and create a new country, a new state: the 51st State.
51st State: Master Set marks the rebirth of the 51st State line, with this set containing 88 cards from the original base game, and 50 cards each from both the New Era and Winter expansions; one of these expansions can be mixed with the cards of the base game, but not both at the same time. The entire set has been rebalanced to offer a cohesive experience no matter which expansion you choose to use.
About 51st State Expansion No Man’s Land
No Man’s Land, the new expansion, gives 51st State a completely new dimension by introducing an area control mechanism – all players try to gain control over a contested territory.
Players spend their Contact tokens not only to interact with cards from their hand, but also to interact with the No Man’s Land board. The board represents regions close to players’ factions and is divided into nine areas, with each area providing different bonuses. Players can build their bases and outposts there to get advantage of the region and gain resources and Victory Points.
The never-ending push and pull between players adds a great deal of player interaction and keeps everyone on their toes until the end of the game.
