The game is currently in development. I could publish the game now, but due to the large number of components I feel the need to simplify some of the mechanics. In the meantime I know there are a lot of teachers who would like to experiment with the game even if it is still in its prototype stage. So I am currently offering the following options to help raise money for promotion and development.

Sign up for our newsletter

FREE – Get occasional updates on the game and invites to each event.

Sign me up!

Teleconference with me for 1 hour

Free – Let’s schedule a time to discuss future possiblities. Simply email me to let me know what and when you have in mind. The tragedy of being an educator is that we are so busy that we become isolated, yet we thrive on exchanging ideas. Let’s tear down the walls of the classroom.

Simply email me what and when you want to discuss at shaunDmcmillan@gmail.com

Get a copy of the rule books

guidebook cover -smalLosRes$15 + shipping – Let me mail you a copy of the facilitator setup guide as well as the Prime Minister player’s handbook, and Scientist player’s handbook. These booklets will explain the rules and setup in detail.

Simply email me your address at shaunDmcmillan@gmail.com, let me know you want the rule books, and I’ll email you an invoice before I mail you the booklets.

Get the Setup Guide, Rules, and 20 National Briefings


agendas-combo$40 + shipping
– Need to persuade others to participate or sponsor the event? Let me send you all 20 of the national briefings, each outlining every nation’s individual character, objectives, and starting resources. These post-card sized game assets make it easy for anyone to understand why this is such a powerful political science simulation.

Simply email me your address at shaunDmcmillan@gmail.com, let me know you want the rule books & National Briefings, and I’ll email you an invoice before I mail you the booklets.

Order a full card/component set

Hard to set a price on this. Due to the large number of components required from different vendors it almost too expensive for teachers paying out of pocket, and not profitable enough to help me promote the game or protect my assets after the long hours of design my students and I invested. Sign up for our newsletter to find out if and when I decide to publish the game, or run a crowd-sourcing campaign to print a large number of copies. I do occasionally let other teachers run the game to help collect feedback from their experience. Email me if you’d like to help develop it, test play it, or contribute any ideas.

Let me visit your school!

$1200 No additional fees (travel costs included in price) – I love sharing about game design, so let me come speak to your school. The price may change for international travel or last second flight tickets.

Host an ALLIANCE Megagame event at your school

$2000 I’ll personally come and run the game for your students. I’ll bring all the materials and use the funds to cover my travel costs. Price may change based on travel needs.

Let’s design a custom version of ALLIANCE for your organization

$4000 – I welcome the challenge to create original or modified simulations for students. The price may vary depending one the design needs of your game and the scope of collaboration needed to complete the project.

Oct 3 Megagame Recap

On October 3, 30+ world leaders came together to resolve the world’s conflicts. Instead, a biological terrorist released 4 epidemics across the globe, and 1 mutated into a super virus initiating the zombie apocalypse. While the CDC quickly went to work on treating and containing the diseases, scientists began racing against time to craft a cure, while the angels and demons of our very nature began to battle over technology. The Pope tried to assassinate a Continue reading Oct 3 Megagame Recap

ALLIANCE megagame almost ready to publish!

The world needs new leadership. Are you read to be prime minister, a military commander, a calculating economist, or a mad scientist? Each nation-team will have to negotiate, compete, collude, go to war, and collaborate to resolve countless international conflicts.

Megagames are one part board game, two parts role playing, and three parts epic experience. Play with as few as 5 players or as many as 60 players, this megagame is perfect for classrooms, parties, and megagame events.

Over the course of the last 2 years I’ve been developing a board game to teach students world-wide problem solving through play and collaboration. We often ask students to quietly  work independently while placing them next to each other, but how often do we utilize our state sponsored opportunity to have them collaborate to solve epic problems together? By allowing them to role-play as world leaders, perhaps they will take the first steps to becoming world leaders.

The game is nearly finished. I only need to produce a few more graphics and upload them to my Game publisher account. As soon as it is done I’ll publish it and make it available to teachers everywhere. Sign up for my newsletter to find out when it becomes available.
