Gang of Four™ is an exciting game of Cunning, Strategy, and Power. The game’s premise is simple – be the first to rid yourself of all your cards and ascend to supreme power. But beware – a strategic misstep may find you in a struggle to survive. History The term, Gang of Four, was first used to describe four powerful radicals in Communist China that rose to power during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) and dominated Chinese politics during the early 1970s. Led by Jiang Qing, a former actress and the power-hungry wife of Chairman Mao, the Gang of Four dominated political, economic, and cultural life in China for years. One month after Mao’s death, they were arrested and jailed, thus ending China’s slide into radicalism.

The Gang of Four card game was first conceived during the upheaval of the Cultural Revolution. The game’s inventor, Lee Yih, wanted to convey the mystery, intrigue, and intense struggle for power that embodied not only China’s recent political history – but also its past. Like the political Gang of Four, the game embodies a never-ending battle for supremacy – where the weak perish and the strong dominate. Good players, like good politicians, must show cunning, flexibility, and ruthlessness.
