From Dragon Dawn:

Gray Eminence is a 3-5 player game lasting 60-90 minutes, in which players take the roles of powerful puppet masters in the modern world, each working towards common goals as well as their own, secret, agenda

Each shadowy figure uses money, power and influence to steer the course of multiple factions toward their own inscrutable ends.

Gray Eminence does not pretend to observe political correctness or historical accuracy but rather aims to induce discussion about the world we live in. We also claim that all events in the game are plausible and event resolution options are within the range of real-world possibilities. We do not, however, pretend that our event resolution options cover all possible eventualities – If you find that you end up discussing event resolution options we didn’t list, that would count as a success in terms of our game design.

”Gray Eminence is Twilight Struggle for the modern age, between multiple powers vying for dominance and the players are the power behind the throne to steer human destiny.”

The winner of Gray Eminence is the person with most progress toward their winning conditions at the end of the game.

An éminence grise (French pronunciation: ​[eminɑ̃s ɡʁiz]) or grey eminence is a powerful decision-maker or adviser who operates “behind the scenes” in a non-public and unofficial capacity. In this game the players adopt roles of the gray eminences working toward their own victory conditions. It’s a game about intrigue, politics, bluffing and (questionable) morality.
