This unpublished prototype for 2 to 7 players is a game adaptation of a science fiction novel series by Penguicon 2017 guest of Honor Ada Palmer. Players represent world governments. Together they attempt to avert world war by arranging face-down cards in a row common to all players: the global Transit System. Players may change these, but may not directly tell each other what they know of them. When the cards are revealed, if the players have managed to arrange the printed numbers in an uninterrupted consecutive sequence, world war is averted, and the players all win! But beware! For your own government is awash in corruption-- some of the characters on your cards might frustrate your efforts!
