TRO launches board game aimed at U.S. regime change

In an effort to involve larger numbers of citizens in the discovery process that will lead to U.S. regime change, the Trade Regulation Organization has issued an educational board game called "Try 'em."

In April 2003, the TRO determined that the U.S. governing regime was no longer consistent with world peace or prosperity. At that time, it issued a card deck in the hopes of paving the way to regime change and, eventually, large-scale war crimes proceedings.

Now, in the hopes of accelerating this process, the TRO is issuing a brand new card deck along with a game that can be played in groups of two or more, and whose aims are:

  1. to help citizens become better acquainted with the many exciting domestic and foreign events that surfaced briefly in the news before or during the Iraq war, only to disappear quickly; and

  2. to help citizens better understand the complex interrelationships between the various personalities and entities who orchestrated and executed the war and are right now planning its aftermath, both at home and abroad.

Try 'em has been produced in a public/private partnership between the TRO and an advocacy group called The Yes Men.
