Crisis in Binni is a megagame by Jim Wallman which explores the ins and outs of a humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa (Binni is the fictional country which has all the elements you may find in a crisis like that… A president clinging to power, warlords, tribalism, drought, famine, refugees… and the UN (Security Council, UNHCR, WFP, …) trying to determine how the world should react.
Player roles are political (Binni-politicians, UN-diplomats), operational (Binni Armed Forces, Binni Warlords, UN Security Mission (UNFORB), UNHCR and World Food Program, …) or a mix of both. And off-course a press-team to report what is happening in New York and Binni (only serious press should apply).
This game might be for you if…
… you want to learn more of some of the mechanics of a food and refugee crisis.
… you want to find out if you’ve got what it takes to hold a country together.
… you ever wanted to rule as a warlord in a war torn country.
… you feel like trying what it takes to be a diplomat.
… you want to plan a UN security mission.
… you just want to help people, at least in game.
… you want to kick people a conscience as the international press corps.
… you are not interested in the theme, but want to try out this megagame-thing.
