Useful Links to follow, first please bear with me...

PROPAGANDA! Make something fun and a little bit naughty, throw in a bit of hilarity and slapstik; and drizzle here and there a some brooding, underlying horror that will never go away. If you make it.... if you make it correctly, they will come!

National Alliance developed and sold a "racist" or "anti-semitic" computer game as a propaganda tool. Not to demean the NA, but there were three major problems with the NA game:

1. The NA game may have been "fun," but it wasn't educational. After all, how much can one learn pretending to shoot ghetto hoodlums or bombing-out culture distorting semites? Not very much! On the other hand, consider a nifty designer board game that uses "The Protocols" for its rule book, or that features "evolutionary strategies" exposed in Kevin MacDonald's The Culture of Critique. Wouldn't a game like that be a lot more rewarding, at least for the type of person we are trying to contact, educate, and win over?

2. It takes lots of technical foo-faw to create a computer game, as opposed to a board game, which may be published as a PDF document with rules, pretty game board tiles, cards, markers, fiat money, etc, all ready to be printed out, assembled and played by the gamester.

3. Computer gaming is usually a solitary vice. Board games demand that people get together to play, often groups of intelligent and educated people who are already addicted to playing such games and are always looking for new and exciting games to play.

Some of you are familiar with the type of game I have in mind, but many probably are not, so here's a bit of info.

These games, often known as Abstract Games, are sometimes described as a cross between "Chess" and "Clue" (or "Monopoly" or "Risk").

They have become wildly popular in the past couple decades. Many of the best are created by German game designers, so many in fact, that they are sometimes known generically as German Abstract Games.

The game mechanics (how the game is played) is very important, but a nice looking game set or interface can be equally necessary if one wants to craft a popular game.

Of course, many of the best such games are open to having "add ons" and "alternate rules" devised; clever game lovers have even been known to create alternate playing boards or use the "mechanics" from one good game in another game with an entirely different scenario (How about "Culture Distortion 1917"?)

Generally, a game with very cool mechanics trumps one with poor mechanics but a nifty-looking board and interface, however, don't be fooled, both parts are important if you want to attract and keep the widest range of fans.

It goes without saying that a game that used Prof MacDonald's theories would also aid in popularizing and selling his books, and certainly in understanding his theories, ideas, and observations. For starters, a simpler game might be constructed. You might find yourself (in the game) a sainted Jude, newly arrived upon the shores of North America, seriously seeking some likely method of GETTING MONEY, so that you might prosper and reproduce ("Jews Must Live!"). Will you become a pornographer? Open a brothel? Found a Civil Rights organization? Or will you join the Rag-Picker's Guild and work with relentless fervor until you have accumulated enough "Dollars" to convince your Uncle Mel to help you publish a national newspaper? Your choice, itz!

The good news:

1.) We have a huge body of fascinating and interesting fact and history with which to work.

2.) Many superb game scenarios and game mechanics (the way a game is played) styles have already been created.

3.) Thousands, probably millions of intelligent gamesters and their friends are waiting with bated breath for new games of this type. Most of these people are too busy playing games to waste time reading "conspiracy theories" on the Internet, ha ha. But I guarantee, all who play our game just once will have "things" added to their gray matter.... "things" they will not likely forget.

Allow me, friends, to suggest several nifty games just waiting to be born, then I will supply the promised links so you can check out the modern boardgame phenomena and see what you think about it!

The piecepack is a set of game parts that can be used to design and play a wide variety of games. Piecepack is to board games what an ordinary deck of playing cards is to card games, add rules and you have games.[NOTE: I see room for much improvement here, but overall, this is a wonderfully useful concept.]

Nice photos here

I don't want to task you with creating the "Intellectual Great Game of All Times." Simple, easy-to-learn, easy-to-play games may be adaptable to serve our purposes too. Like this "Diceland" game, perhaps:

Remember gentle reader, whatever the "game," the most important ingredient is... YOU.
