I don't see anything on that flag itself but like someone else said, that star symbolizes the communist party. What a strange little game. I wonder if MB also released that Illuminati game?


The red star, a symbol commonly used by Communist parties, was said to stand either for the five social groups (workers, youth, peasants, military, and academics), the five known continents, or the five fingers of the worker's hand.

don't know if this has been posted here before; but, have you guys seen the "illuminati new world order" playing cards? they were published in 1995, well before 911

We played this for hours and hours...the whole night through. Another good one is Axis & Allies. The only backlash was the randomness through dice. The best ever war game is Diplomacy. These are all board games we grew up with.



Agreed...Diplomacy rocks. Even more fun playing online.

I also had FA as well as Axis..still own Axis now. I need to teach my son to play.

Nice post OP!

I used to have this game years ago along with Axis and Allies. Both had beautiful layout designs and the rules took a while to get used to, especially Fortress USA. What struck me on this edition I had was the use of SDI satellites that one could control to zap out the opposition but it had to be re-energized and used once each round (I think).

The professional creative in me appreciated the hovertank designs and the miniature armies in the box. I truly think that the game was released right before the Tom Clancy 'craze' happened and shared similar intellectual sentiments of plausible scenarios.

I know for a fact there is an online Axis and Allies but I'm not sure about Fortress USA though. Although I'm an old school RPG-er myself though
.

Try some WarHammer tabletop games. I've seen them and they're way more hardcore


I had both of those too and was a table top gamer of Warhammer and Warhammer 40k. I can't remember how many hours I spent painting figures in high school intstead of doing homework. Thank goodness for the advance in technology so we can enjoy those games on the computer.

WTF!


Wow, I have not seen these before. I thought the game board art was shocking but this is just incredible.

If I had those cards, I would show them to people and I would say.......EXPLAIN THIS!

I think that would leave any average Joe Six Pack just speechless.

Thank you for sharing that and a star to you too.

WOW,

I have that game,

I believe that the character pictured on the cover is actually supposed to be a cuban.

I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be Monument Valley, near the Four Corners area. Thankfully I'm more than a little hesitant to pin my notions of WWIII on a 23 year old board game, because I grew up a short drive from that place. I'd be SOL if Communist/Drug Trafficker/Saddam Hussein loyalist soldiers just popped up in this part of the country.

Now the Ghost Recon parallels with the 2008 Russian/Georgian war is an entirely different story...

I own this game. I'm not sure if I still have the box top with the art, however. I did think the artwork was interesting, as I acquired the game in 2003, after 9/11 and the Iraq invasion had begun. I remember a friend gave it to me along with Axis & Allies. I'm not sure if I had all the pieces, however.

As to any underlying significance, I think it is probably just a result of the game designers looking at Reagan's America and projecting possible future scenarios based on the challenges the country seemed to be facing at the time. They just hit on some stuff that would eventually have relevance.

Yeah, I'm starting to think its based on the movie "Red Dawn". Which came out in 1984. I think this game was probably meant to mimic the environment of the movie.

According to the American Fortress wiki page:

en.wikipedia.org...

These three powers have launched a surprise assault on the now-conventionally-weak United States: Asian invaders on the Pacific coast, Central American invaders along the Southwestern border with Mexico, and the Euro-Soviet invaders along the eastern seaboard. The United States Navy is brushed aside. The land and air forces, still capable of resistance, are nevertheless insufficient to halt the invasions.

1) The Asian Peoples Alliance (yellow player)

2) The Central American Federation (blue player)

3) The Euro-Socialist Pact (red player)


Sounds a lot like the plot for Red Dawn.

www.imdb.com...

A film depicting the invasion of the United States from the north and south by communist forces from Cuba and Russia in the beginning of WWIII and the efforts of partisans from a small mid-western town to turn back the invasion.

If they did think about it extensively, why? A lot of 80's material and games are really quite interesting.

Or is it some self-fulfilling prophecy? Makes you wonder if these images simply gave people ideas that they carried to fruition (ooo, look, the world trade center - yeah, maybe we should use that as our target). If the image showed Chicago instead - with the Sears Tower in the middle - would they have focused their terror on that building and city instead? Hard to tell which came first, the chicken or the egg.

The red, five-point star is a generic symbol often affiliated with socialism or communism.

Or, if you want to be creepier about it, it is also part of the Flag of California:

Ok, I see that you don’t get it, or rather get it but only a half of the meaning. The red star is of course the soviet communist symbol but there is much more bigger coincidence in that flag with your own US history. It’s about civil war. The white flag with red star or blue flag with white star was a symbol used by this state which declare that are going to leave the union so they are now single star. Check this if you want.
georgiainfo.galileo.usg.edu...
This who project that picture on the box of that game was really clever and well educated man but keep in mind that in former times without computers and all this cheep Chinese toys such thing was just made better. The man who made that game want people spend many time playing and have fun. Now toys are mostly cheep trashes which are thrown away after a month because children can’t play like children thirty or forty years ago.

Keen observations.

I hope you don't mind I linked your idea here.

911 sync thread

This is a nice entry on the 911 sync thread that is close to 25 pages long. There are many hints in the movies, billboards,music videos etc. that are truly bizarre. We are collecting the synchronicities that surround that occurrence in our history on that thread.

anyone notice the V-22 Osprey in the center? kinda strange... full scale developent on it didnt even begin until 1986... sure it was on paper before then, but was it open information before '86? anyone know more about this?

I just looked around a bit and found a page that says it was declassified in 1988... same year the first prototype came out



[edit on 23-1-2009 by ManWithGrace89]


That bit about the V-22 Osprey is really weird. It also has Russian Su-47 Berkut fighter jets on the boxart on the left side.


The Su-47's maiden flight was not until 1998.

Your name is Mike Boyd, you were in the 4th ID - My name is Gammage - I was with the 4ID - we were over there in 03. I wouldn't happen to know you, would I?

I'm a SSG now in Korea - what unit were you with, if you don't mind me asking? I was HHD, 1BCT under COL. Hickey out at FOB Raider in 03.


I don't know if you know me, but we have most likely seen each other at some point. I was in a subordinate battalion in 1BCT. I remember CSM Wilson quite well.
