Illuminati: Crime Lords

As for the rules, there are none: players can cheat, steal, and do whatever it takes to the win the game. Think you have what it takes? Form alliances, break them, and win.
Illuminati: Mutual Assured Distraction

With this set of cards, you’ll have new tactics at your disposal; for example, use the media to propagate headlines that read about health care form and a collapsing financial system to control a docile population with fear.
Furthermore, this game set introduces “New World Cards” to your collection, which means that your cards will now affect all players and not just the one who put it down.
Illuminati: Bavarian Fire Drill
Illuminati: Bavarian Fire Drill is an expansion pack brought to you by Steve Jackson; in it, your goal is to take over the world using a variety of new cards that players have never seen before.
To win, players must control new groups like bloggers, reality television shows, and Intelligent Design. But beware; players will have new opponents to look out for such as the bird flu and bobble heads.

Either way, however, players will have new powers that they can use to take over the world. With cards like Hitler’s brain, the Spear of Longinus, and the Screaming Meme, player’s can cheat, steal, and do anything in their powers to wind.
