Conflicted is a game which consists of multiple decks, each deck containing 52 cards, and on each card is a question. The setting is in an environment where some catastrophic event has occurred. Could be nuclear war, World War III, horrible disease, economic collapse, but regardless of the scenario, no form of government really exists or if it does it is unable to help you. No calling 911, no cell phones, no internet. Its just yourself, maybe friends and family, and possibly a small group of people who can help you. Not necessarily Mad Max/Post Apocalyptic, but cohesive civilization with modern technology at our fingertips is essentially over.
Every week I will post one of the cards (selected at random), and each participant writes a response to what they would do in that situation or how they might handle it. I will let the thread run for one week, and then post a new question. Post as much as you like after giving your response. Debating and analyzing is part of the game! I won't be playing as I am the one running the game.
There are no right or wrong answers as the game is about hearing how people could navigate a stressful or perilous situation.
Deck 1 - Downfall: Three of Hearts
Your camp was attacked and your buddies fended off the attackers and took three people as prisoners. Supplies are low and they are extra mouths to feed. Would you kill then to remove the threat and save supplies; try to convert them and lose supplies building trust (this would cut your supply timeline in half); or would you set them free, risking a counter attack? How would you handle this situation and why?
The idea of war is not to die for your country, it's to make the enemy die for his.
