Roll the die, draw the cards, and file a dispatch on the day’s events. Using simple interpretive principles, you’ll read each hand to reveal the conflicts and overtures in a nation hurtling toward collapse.
You may not be able to alter the course of history, but you can bear witness to the personal and societal changes that arrive in its wake.
To play, you’ll need:
- One six-sided die
- A standard 52-card deck of playing cards
- Some way to record each day’s dispatch
The 24-page zine contains complete rules for play, guidelines for interpreting events, four starter themes, and a non-narrative variant called Dispatch Solitaire.
