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 2 - Survival Scenarios: Ten of Clubs
A large gang of travelling looters forced you and your family out of your retreat. While on their way to their next destination, they drove you and your family hours away and sold you and your family at a trading post 150 miles away from your retreat. A Good Samaritan, paid the price for you and set you all free. It's time to start over from nothing in a post-apocalyptic world. How would you go about securing the short term and the long term survival of you and your family?
The idea of war is not to die for your country, it's to make the enemy die for his.
Always have a emergency cache of supplies buried, with seeds wrapped to prevent environmental damage. include junk silver coins for purchasing needed supplies. Plus 9mm ammo and 30 aught 6. The most important is your knowledge base. Mind tools that you learned before the collapse of civilization, things put in your tool kit i.e knapping with flint, when to hunt rabbit and how to skin, how to make soap, what are the edible plants in your area, etc.
