About

     Gag Order is the futuristic sequel to the Wiretap deck that debuted in early 2014. The original Wiretap deck was inspired by the Guardian interview with Edward Snowden, spearheaded by Laura Poitras, which revealed the extent of spying done by the N.S.A. against U.S. and foreign citizens. Gag Order is set in a dystopian future, and features artwork inspired by Blade Runner, Splinter Cell, Brave New World, and 1984, to name a few.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      The year is 2261. After America's subversive takeover of Canada in the 2150's and hostile takeover of Mexico in the 2180's, it began to employ mass surveillance on a global scale. The U.N.A. (United North America) seemed to be the most powerful nation on earth, but dissident voices reached a fever pitch. In 2214, citizens formed D.O.S., the Defenders of an Open Society, to combat the draconian powers of spying that leaders were exercising over them.

     Gag Order is also the first product to be launched by the newly-formed Devilish Rogue Project, dedicated entirely to bringing high-quality handmade games to your kitchen table.

INDIVIDUAL SUITS  

  • SPADES: NSA / Geospatial-INT Surveillance

     The infamous National Security Agency has survived all the way through the years, and now employs field agents with thermo-optical camouflage cloaks for long-term GEO-INT missions. Cards 2-10 are styled with a radar face in the background.

  • HEARTS: FBI / Signal-INT Surveillance

      Signal intelligence remains the primary source of information for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Their agents all wear data mining kits with tablets for visual interface. Cards 2-10 display an envelope in the background, symbolizing e-mail interception.

  • DIAMONDS: DIA / Acoustic-INT Surveillance
      The agents of the Defense Intelligence Agency are masters of jamming and collecting acoustic intelligence data. They are the units that deal most with foreign entities, and usually work alone or in groups of two. Unlike the other suits, their 2-10 cards have no closed lens. The background shows a speaker face.

  • CLUBS: CIA / HUM-INT Surveillance
      The Central Intelligence Agency no longer has civilian oversight, and therefore has become strong-armed in their tactics. They employ agents that specialize in optical reconnaissance (as well as optical concealment). The 2-10 cards from this suit show an open camera lens in the background.

The Jokers are novelists George Orwell and Ray Bradbury, of "1984" and "Fahrenheit 451" fame respectively.

      *Each item has shipping built into the cost. For an explanation on adding items on, please scroll down.

MORE DECKS! - $11 each

      More is better! Excellent if you want a tremendous amount of decks to share with friends, or if you want to add decks onto a pledge that doesn't include decks.

UNCUT SHEETS - $38 each

      Perfect addition for showing off Gag Order all at once to your friends. Printed straight from the MPC press, and features the same finish as the deck itself.

D.O.S. PROPAGANDA POSTER (11x17") - $20 each

      Ideal item to display in your hidden meeting room. The government may have eyes everywhere, but all it takes to demoralize them is to see these plastered up and down the street. Keep those lips sealed!

U.N.A. DICE - $3 per pair

HOW TO ADD ITEMS TO YOUR ORDER:

1. Once you have pledged, click "Manage Your Pledge" located in the top of the right-hand column.

2. Increase your pledge in the Pledge Amount box by the total of the add-ons you'd like. Unless you'd like to change your pledge tier, keep it the same as before. If you do change your tier, just add the total of add-ons to your new tier level.

"The journey to make these cards has been incredibly thrilling, and if given the chance I would do this for the rest of my life."

Thank you all for taking interest in the project, and I hope you enjoy the finished product!

Risks and challenges

I have extensive experience shipping within the US and to Canada, and already have the materials necessary to get the decks to your doorstep. Everything should be shipped out by May 2015, but I will alert you if delays present themselves.

I always take painstaking care to deliver a quality product that you will be proud to show your friends and enjoy for years to come. Thank you for choosing to be a part of this campaign, and thank you for the support!
