One Day, Independence Day! is a four-player game that chronicles events and figures from Korea, just after the country’s division into North and South. Players are assigned an influential Korean figure and compete to become the first president of South Korea by gaining the most supporters throughout each region. Event cards are drawn every three rounds, which narrate foreign interventions that overpower and alter each player’s campaign. May you lead the country to the long-fought-for freedom and independence that countless Koreans sacrificed for!
