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: Eight of Spades
You are at a business convention 1200 miles away from your family when an EMP goes off and stops the entire civilization in its tracks. None of the means of communication or transportation work, and the banking system and all the comforts of modern civilization are broken, setting the entire country back hundreds of years. Infrastructure won't be fixed anytime soon and you aren't ready for this. You have $300 in your pocket and a few hours before all shelves are empty. Would you stay local or head for home? Whatever your decision, what would you buy with the money and why?
