This brilliant game of economic horror is even more prescient now than when it was released.
But it's not a dour game; it's central mechanics drive powerful role-playing and storytelling by focusing on the essential elements of drama: what do characters want, what is in their way, and what are they willing to do?
The mechanics are simple to pick-up and play, and the "market" system takes much of the work off the GM's shoulders. Highly recommended for both novice and veteran role-players.
