A downloadable game
This is a game for 4-12 players. You'll need:
- index cards and pens
- print and assemble the materials in applicants.pdf
- a deck of standard playing cards with jokers.
The setting is Omphalos, a beautiful city on a tidally-locked world where folks on the hot and cold sides are desperate to improve their lives. Everyone takes turns playing either hopeful immigrants and refugees, or faceless bureaucrats of Omphalos bringing their own biases to the process.
Inspirations and touchpoints include 3%, District 9, any meritocratic dystopia you could think of, and the Trump administration's brutal anti-immigrant policies.
CW for domestic violence, crime, sudden death.
