In June 1972, five men are arrested in Washington's Watergate building. What looks like a third-rate burglary attempt on the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee induces journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post to start a thorough investigation. Over the following two years, they discover that the five men were directed from within the White House to spy on political opponents. As a consequence, in 1974 President Richard Nixon resigns from office to avoid impeachment.
In Watergate, one player assumes the role of a Journalist, while the other embodies the Nixon Administration - each with a unique set of cards. To win, the Nixon Administration must build up enough momentum to make it to the end of the presidential term, whereas the Journalist must gather enough evidence to connect two informants directly to the President. Of course, the administration will do all in its power to smother any evidence.
The History of Watergate is included with the game, as well as details for every card in the game!

  • This game was played and recommanded by Gus & Co, here its opinion:

    3/5

    Le thème est bien intégré, et le sujet a clairement été fouillé par le créateur du jeu, et pas plaqué au dernier moment. Mais en dehors du côté historique de la chose, et sorti d’une culture nord-américaine, il n’apporte pas grand-chose, à part quelques clins d’œil amusant pour celles et ceux qui connaissent cet épisode de la vie politique des années 70

    Watergate est un classique de la course à la ressource, et n’amène pas de révolution dans le monde des jeux de société. Le hasard est relativement absent, à part pour les cartes piochées et la couleur des preuves qui sortent à chaque tour

    Comme tous les jeux de course à la ressource, Watergate présente un défaut majeur : La durée !

    Le jeu annonce une heure, et s’y tient. Mais c’est long. Au bout de 4 ou 5 tours, on tourne sur les mêmes cartes (les cartes événements étant jetées), et l’ennui commence à s’installer. La limite de 8 tours (nombre de jetons Momentum) évite que la partie s’étire encore plus, mais ça n’est pas suffisant
