Watch the Skies probably needs no introduction - it is the megagame that put the medium on the map after all. But just in case you missed any key points we’ll start at the beginning...
Watch the Skies is set in year 2025 in a version of our world where the conspiracy theories about the existence of aliens and UFOs are in fact true – we are not alone and they are here! However the people of the world do not know that yet.
The players are grouped into teams, each team playing one of eight real countries in the world, namely USA, UK, France, Russia, China, Japan, Brazil and India. As well as one mysterious team of aliens.
However as important government leaders, Prime Ministers, Presidents, Diplomats, Generals and Scientists they will also have to deal with more down-to-Earth crises such as wars and earthquakes whilst at the same time dealing with the increasing UFO menace - ideally all without creating world-wide panic and terror.
For this run of Watch the Skies we are aiming the game at new players who’ve not played many megagames - so if you’ve been wanting to play but not had a chance this is the perfect opportunity!
If however you have played more than a couple of games and still want to play then we ask you bring some new players along with you as we feel this is the perfect chance to introduce your friends to the hobby. Failing that there are some control roles available so this is also the chance for some veterans to give control a go in a simple and slightly smaller game.
The game is on the 17th March at London’s Arc Centre venue (in Islington, not far from Angel tube station) and we are taking sign-ups now. Just complete the form below letting us know you are interested in playing and if you have any preference in team or role. We absolutely welcome team sign ups too - so if you want to play with a group of friends that let us know all their names and email addresses at the same time.
