And here's a pretty nice video of a MegaGame (not one of mine) if you're scratching your head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72uQUDoq0Wc

Watch the Skies is the most popular iteration of the recent MegaGame craze, in which dozens of players come together to play what is best described as a marriage of rpg and board game! The main premise of Watch the Skies is that the nations of the world can no longer hide the fact that aliens are among us, and must do what they can to juggle mundane world events and emergencies, while keeping the public calm about the revealed existence and activities of extraterrestrials, for should the panic level get too high, governments collapse and everyone loses! Think model-UN meets a wargame like RISK meets your favorite sci-fi movie.

One of the best parts of Watch the Skies is that every game is different. You can google previous games and what occurred and still have NO IDEA what will happen in your game. The rules and broad plot are outlined by Control, but once the game takes off, the PLAYERS determine most of the storyline along the way, and the nature of the Aliens is different everytime. If you are an Alien player, your motivations are conceived of by Control a few weeks prior and emailed to you.

This version of Watch the Skies has been labeled "Epic" to denote the epic time-scale it will use (turns that represent years instead of weeks). It is unique and being presented for the first time by Noah and Vanessa Crow, who between them have 20 years of military intelligence experience, 6 warzone deployments, and an international relations degree thrown in for good measure. We're looking to draw on realism and futurist predictions to run the game with fun new and/or edited nation profiles that more closely resemble reality and its unfair nature, and, if you've played Watch the Skies before, you'll be pleasantly surprised that there are all new, never before seen roles to play!

Remember to bring an open mind- other than the Limited tickets, we cannot guarantee that you will get to be the nation you want, be an Alien, or be placed on a team with your best friend. We will TRY to accomodate, but the game will not work if everyone wants to play Zimbabwe, for example.

A meal will be served during intermission depending on which ticket you bought, but feel free to bring snacks!
