Texas has taken over the world, news at 11
Only Six people showed up to play Illuminati, casting its
future as a WBC event in doubt. [Unless a Sponsor steps forward,
it's history!] Those that played, however, had a good time in
attempting to take over the world with their secret conspiracies.
Early on we were amused by the Girlie Magazines fending off
five attacks before being taken over by the Bavarian Feminists.
The Discordians gained the ire of everyone by taking the IRS
on the first turn and inflicting their bizarre tax policies on
the other players. The Network was plagued by bad die rolls and
never got a good conspiracy going. The Bermuda Triangle backed
up by the Pentagon was the first conspiracy to take a clear lead.
The SubGenius attacked the Pentagon with the Mafia's Robot Sea
Monsters but failed. The Discordian IRS made a successful attack
on the Pentagon, but the Bermuda Triangle was able to take it
back on the next turn.
The Bavarians are the first to take a shot at the win, making
a privileged attack on the Mafia in an attempt to take an entire
branch of the Subgenius power structure. Unfortunately for them
the SubGenius had a Swiss Bank Account which provides enough
money to foil the attack. The Gnomes of Zurich go for the same
strategy and attack the Mafia with Texas and their annoying Chain
Letters. This time the attack is successful giving the Gnomes
the victory with 10 groups.
Prizes provided by Steve Jackson Games were given to all participants.
