Should we look for expansions as WOT events unfold? Yes please!

Yup! Volko's taking notes. I'm tinkering with an official Solitaire version which would put the player into the Jihadist role against a US AI.

I'm not quite sure yet how Tunisia and Egypt play out in Labyrinth terms. Tunisia, I think, will represent a shift to Fair Governance. In Egypt, I'm hopeful that the Muslim Brotherhood (no friends of AQ) will play by any emerging democratic rules of the game, and I'm also hopeful of a real democratic transition. That ought to also be, in game terms, a shift to Fair Governance. In practice, however, the lessening of repressive state security controls might make certain types of small-scale jihadist mobilization and operation easier.

(Outside game terms, as a former resident of Cairo--indeed, I lived just blocks south of Tahrir Square--I'm overjoyed!)

Will be interesting how it plays out, in both countries; and in game cards.

Has to be a "Mubarak leaves office" card that lasts, at least, a full action round.

Moved to RSP until such a time as an Egypt/Tunisia expansion is releasted for Labyrinth: War on Terror, at which point I'll move this thread there. Maybe.

So far the MB is sure talking pluralism. We'll see, but I too am optimistic.

What we have to hope is that, over the long term, whatever happens to the strictures against jihadist organizing, the incentives for it diminish.
