Message Subject Illuminati Card Game -- FULL DECK -- It's Starting To Make Sense Now?? Huh?
Poster Handle lapis lazuli
Post Content
Just a FYI on the game.

The original set of cards came out in 1982, revised in 1983 and again in 1987 with the deluxe game edition. It was again revised with the Y2K & Bavarian Fire Drill cards.

[link to www.sjgames.com]

The cards you see posted on the net (INWO) are derived from the original game with numerous additions (to bring the game into more recent times).

The general consensus among the people I know who play the original game believe it's heavily influenced by The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Anton Wilson with some H.P Lovecraft/Philip K Dick themes thrown in for good measure.

It's clear that some of the cards are prophetic.

I began playing Illuminati in 1986.

okay! This is good information

My question is this- are you saying some of these cards were actually added in later on? For instance, what about the one depicting the World Trade Center or the Pentagon on fire? Are those part of the original deck?
