We are full of hubris and know no fear, so we're running a large scale, day long, megagame based on Watch the Skies – where players take on the role of major governments responding to an alien invasion, or the mysterious aliens themselves!
If you're unsure what a megagame is, or what Watch The Skies entails, SU&SD have a good video on it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN71v9H_gg8
The TL;DW is a day long (~7 hours) cross between XCOM and a Model UN, with inspirations from/room for RPG style improvising and LARP shenanigans aimed at ~40 players, about being world governments trying to achieve their goals while responding to the threat posed by the aliens and other global crises! (Or being aliens doing nefarious alien things.) Each human nation has four players:
* The Head of State, responsible for the overall running of their nation.
* The Chief of Defense, responsible for intercepting UFOs and the military response.
* The Foreign Minister, responsible for diplomacy and being the representative in the UN.
* The Chief Scientist, responsible for research and managing alien technology.
IF YOU SIGN UP AND GET TICKETS, AND LET A MEMBER OF CONTROL (HANNAH COLLINS, LEWIS PRICE, ALONSO CABANERO, BEN ALTHEN, OR LAWFUL TIM) KNOW SO WE CAN SORT OUT TEAMS - you can find us on the Tabletop Society Discord (https://discord.gg/xdDZnYQ) or our megagame-specific Discord (https://discord.gg/CCfeYVQ2mm) (also please join this once you've signed up so we can easily contact you, share relevant information, etc.
Things to note:
* If you want to make sure you're in a specific team, get four players, have everyone sign up together and tell control that once you get tickets.
* This is first come, first serve, both in terms of ticketing and role allocation - if you want a specific role, get in earlier rather than later, or join as a full team
* Please join our event discord (https://discord.gg/CCfeYVQ2mm) once you've signed up so we can easily contact you
