In Staatsgreep ("Coup") players battle for control of five countries (Russia, USA, UK, France and China). Players start with 3 country cards each, and gain a new one each round or attack another player to gain their cards. Attacking can be done by showing another player 1 or 2 cards from a single country and 'attack' a different country, or the same. Once a player gets all five country cards they take control of that country. Once you control 2 countries you win the game (3 if you play with 2 players).
