NIGHT 10: AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION.

Image

Oliver North sits at the console, and unfurls a small, rolled paper still stained with President Reagan's blood. He enters the code into the machine.

The U.S Launch Officer and Nicaraguan Contra step up, and each insert a BLUE KEY. They lock eyes, nod, and turn them simultaneously.

The green-type-on-black screen blinks, awaiting instructions. The other Contra steps forth, produces the file they looted from the body of Oleg Kalugin, and types in the targeting data.

"God bless America," says North. "Muerte a los rojos," says one of the Contras.

A REMOTE NICARAGUAN JUNGLE

The third Contra looks bitterly to the sky, and tears the insignia off of his uniform. He quickly packs up his weapons and disappears into the jungle, disgusted that his compatriots would sell out their cause for a few dinero. The Unblinking Eye has disappeared. He was an Extremist Nicaraguan Contra.

THE KREMLIN

NATO troops have overrun the Eastern Bloc, and the RAF have been destroyed. The Soviet nuclear arsenal is a shambles and the launch items are scattered. There is no hope of surviving the first strike. The sirens blare, impotently, and suddenly, there is a flash of light.

Image

Ampersand is dead. He was Vladimir Kryuchkov, the Soviet Hawk.
The Emperor's Son is dead. He was Illya Kuryakin, KGB Agent.
Catullus is dead. She was the Soviet Launch Officer.

PANAMA CITY

Noriega vainly slams the buttons and dials on his HAM radio, desperately trying to reach the RAF or his contact in the Contras. The lines have been dead for hours, but he still clings to the hope of a unified paramilitary revolution. Even when he sees the flash, he can't quite believe he's been betrayed. It happens too fast for him to come to terms with what's happened.

Image

Laserblast is dead. He was Manuel Noriega.

THE GAME HAS ENDED. THE IMPERIALISTS HAVE WON.

Thanks for playing!

- There were no masons, but there were several opportunities for players to connect during the game. Reagan and Gorbachev could use THE RED TELEPHONE to contact one another once per game. I'd envisioned this as being used in a situation where a launch might be imminent, but they used it immediately and built a Superpower WC cabal.

- Additionally, the Hawks could contact (anonymously) their killing factions on alternate nights. That's the [REDACTED] in the rules. Ecto immediately tried to connect with the Contras but Ampersand waited till his second opportunity.

- There were two US players and two USSR players who lacked a Superpower WC: the hawks and the moles. Everyone else had Superpower, Imperialist/Communist, Faction WCs available.

- In each of the killing factions, one player had only a faction WC, an EXTREMIST Contra (TUE) and a RADICAL RAF (Grouchypants).

- The US Bodyguard carried 50 luftballoons and the Soviet bodyguard carried 49. If the paramilitaries had gotten both items and combined them to form 99 luftballoons, they could have released them to trip the Early Warning System into thinking missiles had been launched. I'd envisioned this as a way to break a stalemate if both the US and USSR had all their nuke items but were holding back in a MAD scenario. It turned out to be harder to get the items than I had assumed.
