The popular consensus that we are alone in this universe is wrong.  There have been sightings of mysterious UFOs in the sky and whispers of machinations in the unseen corners of the world and they're increasing with each passing day.  Watch the Skies is a megagame of international proportions as nations must come to grips with the arriving Aliens and their hidden agendas.  But the world keeps on spinning and players must juggle their obligations to resolving the Alien threat with other concerns as international and domestic dilemmas vie for their attentions.  Can the players handle this extraterrestrial crisis and preserve Humanity or their own nation?

These is the Brazil, China and France Artifact Cards needed for MegaGame Society's Watch the Skies v2.0.  There are 6 types of Artifact cards and 12 Artifact cards per type.  Each artifact is marked with a country flag to denote to whom the Artifact card was given to.

[Note: Sample cards shown here only have example text displayed.  The actual cards have different text displayed.]

In order to play this megagame, you will need the other associated Watch The Skies cards from DriveThruCards and tokens as well as permission from the MegaGame Society to run the megagame.  Please Email Contact@MegaGameSociety.com for more info.


What is a megagame?

A megagame is a massive multiplayer in-person gaming experience where player counts usually start around 30 and go up into the 100s for the bigger megagames.  A combination of immersive live role-playing and board game mechanics, a megagame has something for every kind of gamer.  Megagames are different from a LARP as there is no emphasis on physical prowess nor are they driven by gamemasters towards a definite pre-planned end point.  In a megagame, the player is in control of how the plot is driven and where it may end up.  While there are Game Control members at a megagame being run, their purpose is to serve to adjudicate results from player interactions with each other or game mechanics.  Examples of megagaming in action can be viewed at SUSD's playthrough of Watch the Skies UK at: http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/videos/v/susd-play-megagame/ or [ http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/blog/post/susd-play-watch-skies-2-pt-1/ and http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/blog/post/susd-play-watch-skies-2-pt-2/ ].

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
