Illuminati: New World Order (INWO) is an out-of-print collectible card game (CCG) that was released in 1994 by Steve Jackson Games, based on their original boxed game Illuminati, which in turn was inspired by the 1975 book The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea. An OMNI sealed-deck league patterned after the Atlas Games model was also developed.
Plot cards provide the bulk of the game's narrative structure, allowing players to go beyond - or even break - the rules of the game as described in the World Domination Handbook. Plot cards are identified by their overall blue color scheme (border, and/or title color). Included among the general Plots are several special types, including Assassinations and Disasters (for delivering insults to the various Personalities and Places in play), GOAL (special goals that can lead to surprise victories), and New World Order cards (a set of conditions that affect all players, typically overridden when replacement New World Order cards are brought into play).
Organizations are identified by their overall red color scheme (border and/or title). There are three main types of Organization: regular Organizations, People, and Places. They all feature Power, Resistance, Special Abilities, Alignments, Attributes, and Control Arrows (an inward arrow, and 0-3 outward arrows). Just like their Illuminati masters, Organizations can launch and defend against a variety of attacks. Provided that the attacking Organization has a free, outward-pointing Control Arrow, players can increase the size of their Power Structure via successful Attacks to Control, a mathematically determined method employed whenever a player wants to capture an Organization from their own hand, or from a rival player's Power Structure. Unless the attack is Privileged (only the target and attacker can be involved), all players can aid or undermine the attack. Attacks to Destroy follow a similar game mechanic, but result in the Organization's removal from the Power Structure, after which they are immediately discarded. The outcome of all Attacks are determined by a dice roll. Other ways to introduce Organizations to the Power Structure involve Plots, or spending Action Tokens to bring Groups into play, or by using free moves, each at appropriate times during the play cycle.
But for those of you who don't have access to the net, this informationcould come in handy, especially come trading time. If game play is allyou're concerned about, then trading based on a card's merits and how itfits with the type of deck you're trying to build is fine. But for youcollectors out there, knowing the rarity of each card is a must.One more thing : We're very pleased to give the artists who worked so hardon INWO specific credit for each and every card. So don't be shy when yousee them at a convention - get 'em to autograph the cards they helpedcreate!
A Facebook post with four images of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States claims that the attacks were orchestrated by the United States government. The pictures illustrate the twin towers of the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon building alongside the shots of the two burning after the strikes. The text on the image reads, "1995 Illuminati card games. Everything was conspired". The post's caption reads, "Some Sheeples still think Ali Baba did this." The post has been shared 130 times and has been liked by over 400 people.
The user has implied that the Illuminati exist, and their card game released in 1995 shows the twin tower and the Pentagon burning, indicating that it was planned well in advance. However, there is no basis for the claims made in the post.
According to The Independent, Illuminati: New World Order is an out-of-print multiplayer card game released by Steve Jackson Games that first appeared in 1994. According to conspiracy theorists, the game has a strange capability of "predicting" major global events like the 9/11 attacks, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Capitol riots.
The first image shared by the user is, in fact, the "terrorist Nuke card" from the game. It shows an explosive midway up a skyscraper in a scene that looks like the attack on the WTC Twin Towers in New York City in September 2001. The image under it is another card depicting a bomb blast at the Pentagon. 2b1af7f3a8
