A game was produced to allow someone with no experience to run a live action role-playing game. The project was motivated by an interest in science in social studies education and vice versa. The setting of the game was a nuclear weapons disarmament conference spurred by an increase in tensions. It was written for between 20 and 39 players and was targeted at honors high school social studies students in the 11th and 12th grades to mesh with the MCAS environment.
