The year is 2033. The world is in ruins. All the major cities have been wiped away by a nuclear war. Flooded with radiation, the planet surface is largely unfit for life. Handfuls of survivors have found refuge in antinuclear bunkers, the largest of which is the Moscow Metro, which has become humanity's last haven after Judgment Day. Based on the popular Metro 2033 universe created by Russian writer and journalist Dmitry Glukhovsky, each player in this board game adaptation is a leader of one of the many factions of the post-nuclear underground. In order to win, a faction has to achieve ten Victory Points, or capture all four stations of Polis — the cultural and political heart of Metro.
