London - Saturday 17 March 2012

This is a crisis that threatens to bring about the end of civlisation as we know it. A major outbreak of virus-Z is throwing Romero City into chaos. Can the authorities at City, State or even Federal level deploy quickly and effectively enough to restore normality? Lets find out - play the megagame.

This is a crisis game that has many roles at several levels, and so you have a lot of choice. The context is modern, and there are, inevitably political, social and economic issues as well as the purely tactical ones of cleansing the Infected. This is a game of politics as much as an operational challenge, and player teams will have their own secret objectives and agendas as well as the more obvious ones.
