You will tell the story of an asteroid belt space station, rebelling against their colonial masters on Earth. Shuffle a deck of cards. Each turn, everyone draws a card. The first player narrates how a problem on the station is exposed, discarding a card and selecting the problem using its RANK. -RANK- A : Oxygen 8 : Corruption 2 : Food 9 : Crime 3 : Medicine 10 : Police Brutality 4 : Gravity J : Imprisonment 5 : Work Accident Q : Disappearances 6 : Lockout K : Assassination 7 : Taxation At any time another player may yell "Riot!". They narrate the riot, and put a card into the voting pile, selecting who is hurt in the riot using the card's SUIT. -SUIT- CLUBS : The Station DIAMONDS : Civilians HEARTS : Rebels SPADES : Earth officials Until yet another player says "Breaking News!". They do a media coverage of the riot, and put a card into the voting pile, selecting who the coverage favors using the card's COLOR. -COLOR- RED : Rebels BLACK : Earth The game ends when no cards are left in the deck. If the voting pile has more red than black cards, the station gains independence, otherwise it remains a colony. Taking turns, each player shortly describes the price the people pay.
