World War III

The year is 2028. For the past ten years the world has fallen into anarchy due to World War III. Starting as an economic conflict between two world powers, United States of America and China, this full-blown violent encounter sprang from trade tensions. When China decided to cut off all ties, the US was left with a large economic hole. Allies of China include North Korea, Russia, and Vietnam, while the United States is joined by France, England and Germany. With the introduction of futuristic weapons, and the number of deaths growing exponentially, the United States is in a dire situation and must find a way to conclude the war. 

Topics of debate:

  •     Negotiating and compromising with China
  •     Determining future trade relationships

Apalachin Meeting of 1957 

Gang Wars

At the height of their power, the organized crime families of New York stole, trafficked, and killed all without detection by the FBI and or any other rivals. However, as the old “conservative-Sicilian” faction grasped onto power, the younger “liberal-American” faction split over ideological differences and struggles for control. This comes to a head at the Apalachin Meeting in 1957 when the younger guard attempt to take power and the FBI is forced to recognize the Mafia’s existence. How will mafia leadership navigate the wrestles for power, the sabotage, and the creeping realization that they will no longer live underground?

Topics of debate:

  •     Control of “the Commission”
  •     Evading police and the FBI
