Invent a reason to invade a nation rich with petroleum, make everyone believe that your actions are legitimate and done in the name of freedom and justice, make sure the media plays along by giving false information for a long time: this is the formula for becoming rich beyond your wildest dreams. Luckily, this is only a game and would never happen in real life!
One More Barrel is a strategic game where every player represents a leader of an Occidental Country. The objective is to ward off global terrorism by finding weapons of mass destruction that are hidden in a state considered to be hostile. In order to do this, every player must send troops to invade this rogue state and accomplish the overall objective. Because, however, the weapons of mass destruction are not there, this merely serves as an excuse to win over the public opinion. To win the game, you must also conquest the diverse provinces within the invaded country, steal their oil, sell as much of it as possible and award many contracts to companies in your own country. At the end, whoever is the richest wins!
Every player, in addition to being a leader of an Occidental country, also take the role as head of a rebel group within the invaded country. These rebels will become operative after the first phase of the war and can cause damage to your troops allowing you to win the last barrel of oil!
