First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me... and there was no one left to speak for me.

So for those who haven't heard the US government may be closing its fiscal doors on October first. That also happens to be my birthday. Since I have no doubt this will mean riots, planes falling from the sky, animals eating people/buildings, and so on I thought maybe I should ask my friends and family to get me lots of games now while they still can. After all, your precious Xbox's won't work once the power goes out! Hah!

Any thoughts on some good 'the world (of America) is ending' games? Also, how do you envision the coming end of days?

The Quiet Year is the perfect end of the world game. (Even though it is miscast here as an RPG instead of a boardgame.)

In fact, in the event of post apocalyptic preparation, it could be considered educational as well as entertainment.

Going to need some farming skills with the return to an agrarian society. But probably also going to need some muscle to keep the goods after they've been harvested. Thus, I foresee the Amish Mafia becoming the New World Order.

Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

To simulate the inability of federal government workers to travel, use the additional restriction of no flights into/out of US cities, and no NIH/CDC means no diseases can be cured in research stations in the US.

Good luck.

And happy birthday!
