To begin, the player will set up the board, organize the game tokens and randomly choose two mission cards that must be completed in the allotted number of turns.
The player will then shuffle the patrol deck and place it next to the side of the board. This deck represents where the Milice patrols will occur during each day.
The player will choose a location to send their first worker and assign one of their pawns there. They then draw a patrol card, and place a Milice pawn if able. This continues until all of the available worker pawns and Milice pawns are placed. If the Milice find your worker during patrol, they will be arrested!
Your diligent workers are then free to perform their duties, working toward your two goals. Gather resources, recruit fellow patriots to the cause, and undermine the enemy plans to throw off the yoke of oppression and free your homeland!
