The Game of FREE WILL (or GOD'S DILEMMA)
Sat, 01 Nov 2014
- This game represents the dilemma of solving the world’s great problems when people all want to be free individuals and move in their own direction.
- The dice represents free will, it is the will of the pieces to move as they wish rather than being controlled by the player.
- The players also have a disc for flipping; on one side of the disc is printed the words “Individual Freedom” on the other side of the disc is printed “The Greater Good”.
- There are six circles on the board and written in each of the circles is a global problem.
- They are: 1. War 2. Poverty 3. Disease 4. Crime 5. Hunger 6. Disaster
- THE OBJECT OF THE GAME: is to have an equal number of your pieces in each of the circles.
- One of the players has 36 blue game pieces. The other player has 36 green game pieces.
- First a player flips the disc. If it lands on the side that says “The Greater Good” then they may place a game piece in which ever circle they want.
- If they flip the disc and it says “Individual Freedom”, then they must roll the dice and place their piece within the circle that is indicated by the dice roll (for example, if they roll a 6 then they place their piece within circle 6; if they roll a 3 then they place their piece within circle 3 and so on).
