Long Description:
Watch The Skies is a game about geopolitical actors at a crisis moment, asking “How would Earth governments deal with visitors from the stars?” Each faction has to weigh its agenda with the new facts, dangers, and opportunities the Aliens represent while keeping the public quietly in the dark until this information can be spun in a positive light. MegaGames are huge games with a bit of everything - role playing, combat mechanics, tech trees, bluffing, negotiation - but unlike most games they’re mostly driven by you, the player. The umpires, called the “Control Team,” will be on hand to answer questions and come up with rulings your creativity inspires. While you have agendas and goals laid out for you, megagames allow players to invent their own win conditions and pursue those as well. This version of WTS has been completely rewritten from the ground-up.
