The newly launched drivethrucards.com (part of the trusted drivethrustuff brand) has re-"published" this game as a print and play PDF. It's a little odd, considering the site is primarily geared toward print on demand... I suspect that it's due to the odd size and shape of the cards. Anyways. This is a fun "take that" style game that ends before it overstays it's welcome. If you're a fan of the Paranoia universe, Friend Computer recommends you pick up a copy today. Failure to comply is treason.

Thanks for the heads up. As much as our group loved this game, we were really hoping for some more cards (the base game can get a little stale if you play too often). I know Mongoose was working on an expansion that obviously never got completed. I wonder if any of those cards are available...

Yeah. When I found the game I immediately looked to see if the mysterious unreleased expansion was there too. It was not. I suspect there aren't any new cards in this set. It's probably the original PDF mongoose sent out to printers. If they had done any value adding they could have reformatted the layout of the cards so drivethrucards could do print on demand instead of PnP. Either way, I'm just glad to see its available in some fashion. Since the cards are odd sized and can't be sleeved, I'm always worried about damaging the cards.

Woah, that is so weird. Why would they pull it so soon? The site has only been live for a few months... I think I will email them and ask. Last time I emailed them they contacted a publisher on my behalf and got back to me in a day or two.

That is odd, I mean, it's not like it's costing them inventory space to host it?

In case someone managed to get it from there, I'd be delighted if they'd be willing to share it with me. Getting a used copy is prohibitively expensive at the moment (and that's before shipping to Estonia.. ).

I got a copy for $25 + shipping at Noble Knight a couple months ago. They pop up every once in a while.

Check the Paranoia RPG PDFs on DTRPG ... oh wait, you can't, because they're gone too.

Mongoose Matt has been popping up places saying that a Paranoia announcement is in the works, but he's been saying that for a few months now. Take that as you will

They pulled the RPGs too? That seems unnecessary even if they are planning something new.
