Jim likes Juggernaut because he loves political retro-futurist stuff like Fail-Safe and Dr Strangelove. He's also on-board for just about anything Jason Morningstar spins up.
JUGGERNAUT is card-based live-action roleplaying game about free will for 4-6 players from the creators of FIASCO and CAROLINA DEATH CRAWL.
It is July third, 1950. The Korean War is eight days old. National Security Council Report 68 is sitting on Harry Truman’s desk, a grim outline of the Cold War that is to enfold the world for the next 40 years. Alan Turing’s paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” is circulating for review. Cinderella is a box office sensation. And you have invented a computer that can see the future.
Employing cutting-edge Ward-Takahashi identity derivations outside their quantum-theoretical framework, JUGGERNAUT processes enormous data sets, ostensibly in the service of code-breaking once the technology is proven and refined. The unstable geniuses behind the math have reached some curious conclusions that only experimental evidence can confirm. By the numbers, JUGGERNAUT - given enough resources - should be able to crack ciphers before they are even invented.
The game IS designed FOR 3-6 players AND a SESSION will typically LAST two hours, depending ON your style of play.
The 6-page rules PDF IS available BY clicking "Publisher Preview" above AND provides detailed directions FOR how TO play the game. Rules are also included IN the cards themselves.
