A friend and I are running a megagame, you should absolutely sign up (http://watchtheskies.eventbrite.com) if you're free because it's going to be AMAZING. We're going to co-run it with the Brooklyn Strategist and we will probably fill up soon so sign up if you're interested!



The aliens have landed and it's up to the nations of Earth to unite... or not.

Or at the very least, pass some UN resolutions and try not to spy on each other too much. And then there's all that interesting alien tech floating around in the grey market...

How will it all shake out? There's only one way to find out:

A MEGAGAME.

What is a megagame? It's like a game but bigger. Mega-bigger.

Part RPG and part board game, Watch the Skies brings together 30-45 players who will play on teams as various nations and the alien visitors. Each nation is made up of a team fufilling different roles: the Foreign Minister, the Top Scientist, the Military Chief, and the Head of State. The Foreign Minister will hold talks with other countries and the UN. The Top Scientist will research new and alien technologies. The Military Chief will control the military and the spies. The Heads of State will listen to his advisers and ultimately call the shots for his nation. And the aliens... well, you'll have to play the game to see what they're up to.

Inspired by the recent megagame episode of Shut Up and Sit Down video (http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/blog/post/susd-play-goddamn-megagame/) a group of passionate gamers are excited to bring Watch The Skies to the United States. The game will last approximately 8 hours. All materials will be provided by the hosts, as well as breakfast and lunch.

For those of you that watched the Shut Up and Sit Down episode: we've worked with the game designer to change any aspects that were spoiled in the video. Don't worry, you'll have a completely unique experience.
