Watch the Skies: Fugitive Freedom Fighters

Watch the Skies: Fugitive Freedom Fighters

Past Scenario

In the near future, under the watchful eye of an unfortunately prescient player impersonating Donald Trump, Humanity was infiltrated by a strange warlike alien race. Earth governments sought to uncover the aliens motives and enter into negotiations with the aliens while keeping the truth of extraterrestrial life out of the hands and minds of their citizens.

  • Date: Friday, August 5th, 2016
  • Time: 11am - 5pm
  • Location: GenCon, ICC Room 142

What’s different this time?

We thought this run was special, since this was our first GenCon (both as event hosts and attendees), so we wanted to let the alien team decide what they wanted to do.

We wrote up a few blog posts here about the process, including the alien’s backstory!

Other changes and new mechanics include:

  • No app!
  • Media game changed to be less mechanically intensive; press conferences are given every turn, instead of a newspaper. Media players control access to the real life microphone for other players.
  • Added Germany as a 9th Nation
  • Gave away some game components to players to keep
