Red star on white flag refers in history to secessionists states. I'm pretty sure it was important meaning for the creator of that picture because all that game is about disintegration of the USA.

by the way lok at this

Some sort of logo


Look at badges of overtaken states in the game.

I had Axis & Allies and someone stole it out of my room in college, so I went to the store to buy another and picked up this one instead. My memory of it is that we tried to enjoy it like A&A, but somehow the games seemed to be more tedious and predictable, probably because of the way the U.S is set up to win, but win slowly. I just went to my game closet to look for it, but I must have given it away.

How is it that I ever had enough time for a five hour board game?

In 1986 Milton Bradley released Fortress America, a tabletop wargame set in the 21st century.




The premise of the game involved terrorists halting the flow of oil out of the Middle East, the US becoming energy independent, and developing a space based weapons constellation. This occurs over a number of years before reaching the current timeframe of the game.


I would not of been surprised had this been presented to the U.N by Colon Powell.


Quite a quirky collectors item .
S&F.

I did not know about the red star's connection to the civil war. However, I doubt that was the intention of its use. The game's not about civil war, it's about foreign forces - including communists - invading the country.

Who knows, though?

do any of you people understand statistics or probability?

or the ability of the human mind to hunt out patterns and see them as significant?

or that you ignore all the games without any vague links to current events?

I also noticed something else. Do you guys see that soldier in the center of the box that is supposed to be a black ops? Well, behind him are the twin towers. I find it uncanny that he looks like urban SWAT that would be used in the event of martial law.

Looks VERY much like the cover to "Axis and Allies" a WW2 based strategic game. Probably just a sequel, and I doubt WW3 will take place on American soil.

In Axis and Allies you had to bring american planes and ships across both see's just to get to the fight in Europe, or attack Japan.

The fight was mainlt based around the German/Russian front. and the German Tank campaign in Africa, against the British.

Really fun game, better Risk, because you had actual infantryman,tanks,subs,battles ships Air Craft Carriers(with planes that say on the deck. As well as Industril complexes you could buy or take over to pump out more troops.

This Fotress America just looks like a wanna be Axis and Allies (also made by Milton Bradly (I still have a fairly new copy of it, I found at a Flea Market,. That game had a pretty big following. As big as Risk.

Yes even Axis and Allies favored the allies a bit. After 50 or so games, we had to start playing with the revise rules, Germany and Japan got more troops/tanks, and land to start.

Man I remember I could set that entire board up for start, blindfolded. good times.

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

I have brought this up in the past, very creepy parallels! Ghost Recon: Desert Siege also foresaw the 2006 war between Erteria and Ethiopia.

Indeed, and Clancy isn't exactly staying too far away from people "in the know" these days either. His last birthday party was on an aircraft carrier, for crying out loud.

I had this game (the not old saddam box), when I was a kid. It just came out and my mom brought it home for me. She said it could be a game to learn from. Years later I saw it as less of a game, and more how it related to the actual possibility of reality.

Crazy game, scary almost if one believes in conditioning.

Great thread!

That could very well be an FBCB2 or blue force tracker, he's even using his finger. Touch screen in the 80s?

I remember playing that game as a kid! However, I believe all the conspiracy issues are overblown. The ememy alliance was made up of China, a Middle Eastern Alliance, a South American Alliance, and a Soviet Block Alliance. It was us against the World. The reason for Saddam's picture is because at the time of the games release, he was the most powerful figure in the middle east. As for the Golden Gate, if you remember the game scenario, the enemy alliance invades the West Coast, East Coast, and South West through Mexico. The GG represents the West coast front, the World Trade Ctr represents the East Coast front, and the AZ Mesas represent the SW front. Its all just a coincidence or you are reading into it too much. Cheers!

"is it truly a conspiracy by some Illuminist New World Order or is there something greater"

******Nothing can be greater than the world revolution as planned by the Illuminati New World Order designed to enslave literally mankind on Earth. Now, the phases have all happened as planned since 1776. The Illuminati joined the Freemasons in July 1782. From then on each generation of the 13 Illuminati families and their "interconnected families" have planned each objective for the next generation to complete.

In truth, the evidence is virtually irrefutable and undebatable except for fabrications or denials by the debaters. No professor or Government scholar of History or politics would be able to unseat this truth.

The WTC and The Golden Gate are in the picture to represent that the war is from coast to coast...aka...The United States. The first landmark well known on the east coast is *shock* The WTC and the Statue of Liberty and the last on the west coast is *shock* The Golden Gate bridge...that's hardly a conspiracy so much as a good art director
Saddam is on the cover to represent the oil embargo that was on the U.S. in the game...and the whole thing is about the U.S.S.R. more or less...that is completely not anything near the current situation.

So is the Illuminati responsible for every synchronistic event in history? History is full of them. I mentioned the Wreck of the Titan book, which is synchronistic with the Titanic. The Oil Storm film would be another good one, being synchronistic with Hurrican Katrina. That's just a very brief example, there are tons of these "coincidences" throughout history.

Some people say these coincidences point to a human conspiracy. Sometimes things are human conspiracy but from my point of view at times there definitely seems to be something else greater than human conspiracy and It seems to work in mysterious ways.

The Titan thing really intrigued me...almost more than the original thread topic. Would you happen to know an article or site on more stuff like it...

Ah......I see what you mean. There is indeed something more, much more than a "HUMAN CONSPIRACY." You are spot on.

In accordance with my research here are the truths that is supported by most historians and researchers that don't have an agenda with some organization or hired by the powers that be.

One: The real issue at stake is whether Christ or Satan will ultimately reign as King upon this Earth. The supernatural entities do exist as do millions of other entities on both sides. They are extra-dimensional and not ET or Aliens from some distant planet.

Two: The supreme directors of the Satanic conspiracy are a small group of men who believe in the supernatural but who deliberately organize Atheistic-materialism to lure human beings away from Almighty God. the Devil, their Master, wins every soul who has denied the existence of God and refused to love, serve and obey Him.

Three: The fundamental principle of the Satnaic Illuminati is to divide different races, religions, political groups, social classes and nationalities, etc, and make them fight each other so they become weak in manpower and ruined economically. This plot leads them to wards internationally.

Four: In the 20th Century there was five fields of thought trying to influence the course of world events.

A. Christianity: teaching that Jesus Christ is the son of God, will return, in his majesty, glory and restore the law and order of Almighty God.

B. International Communism, teaching Atheistic-materialism and claims that everything starts from MATTER (energy) and returns to MATTER. Its leaders work to bring about an International Athesitic dictatorship.

C. The Illuminati who used all other to reach their goal to establish the Despotism of Satan upon this Earth.

D. Political Zionism which aimed at control by the Zionist Jews, as named by Jesus himself calling them the Synagogue of Satan that exist today.

E. International naziism. It teaches that the diety of man and that the STATE is ALL SUPREME. the leaders sought to impose their idea for a militarist dictatorship upon the people.

"The Red Fog Over America" by William Guy Carr, Dec 1955,

They put into effect the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. The JEWS have been wrongly faulted for the cause of this conspiracy as the Zionist Jews, different, The Masons, Scottish Rite, 33rd Degree, linked with the Illuminati and finally the Pope, or Black Nobility linked with the British Royal Family.

The following is a copy paste from my research:

1760 - Satanic plot was launched when it first came into existence under the name "Illuminati." This Illuminati was organized by one Adam Weishaupt, born a Jew, who was converted to Catholicism and studied to be a Catholic priest, and then, at the behest of the then newly organized House of Rothschild, defected and organized the Illuminati. Naturally, the Rothschilds financed that operation and every war since then, beginning with the French Revolution, has been promoted by the Illuminati operating under various names and guises.

1770 - Professional money lenders, and recently organized House of Rothschild, retained Weishaupt, to revise and modernize the age-old Protocols of Zionism, which from the outset, was designed to give the Synagogue of Satan, so named by Jesus Christ, ultimate world domination so they could impose the Luciferian ideology upon what would remain of the human race after the final social cataclysm by use of satanic despotism.

1 May 1776 - Illuminati, allegedly - (Adam Weishaupt-Founder, Jesuit Priest and Freemason) Illuminati name translated to "bearers of the light" - Lumen derived from Lucifer, ancient "angel of light". Adam Weishaupt was a Jesuit-trained professor of canon law, teaching in Engelstock University, when he defected from Christianity to embrace the luciferian conspiracy.

Weishaupt completed his task May 1, 1776. Now you know why May 1 is the great day with all communist nations to this very day (May 1 is also "Law Day" as declared by the American Bar Association). That was the day, May 1, 1776, that Weishaupt completed his plan and officially organized the Illuminati to put the plan into execution. That plan required the destruction of all existing governments and religions. That objective was to be reached by dividing the masses of people, whom he Weishaupt, termed: "goyism" or human cattle into opposing camps in ever increasing numbers on political, social, economic, and other issues - the very conditions we have in our country today.

The opposing sides were then to be armed and incidents provided which would cause them to fight and weaken themselves and gradually destroy national governments and religious institutions. This being a prime feature of the Illuminati plans. When and if their blueprint for world control, the Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion, is discovered and exposed, they would wipe all the Jews off the face of the earth in order to divert suspicions from themselves.

NOTE: If you think this is far fetched, bear in mind that they permitted Hitler, a liberal socialist himself, who was financed by corrupt Kennedy, the Warburgs, and the Rothschilds, to incinerate 6,000,000 Jews.

Now just why did the conspirators choose the word: "Illuminati" for their satanic organization? Weishaupt himself said that the word is derived from Lucifer and means: "holder of the light." Using the lie that his objective was to bring about a one-world government to enable those with mental ability to govern the world and prevent all wars in the future.

In short, using the words: "peace on earth" as his bait, exactly as that same bait as: "peace" was used by the 1945 conspirators to force the United Nations on us, Weishaupt was financed, as said before, by the Rothschilds, recruited some 2,000 paid followers. These included the most intelligent men in the field of arts and letters, education, the sciences, finance, and industry.

1798 John Robison warned all Masonic leaders in America that the Illuminati had infiltrated into their lodges and on July 19, 1789; David Papen, President of Harvard University, issued the same warning to the graduating-class and lectured them on how the influence of Illuminism was acquitting on American politics and religion, and to top it off; John Quincy Adams, who had organized the New England Masonic Lodges, issued his warnings. He wrote three letters to Colonel William L. Stone, a top Mason, in which he exposed how Jefferson was using Masonic lodges for subversive Illuministic purposes. Those three letters are at this very time in Whittenburg Square Library in Philadelphia. In short; Jefferson, founder of the Democratic Party, was a member of the Illuminati which at least partly accounts for the condition of the party at this time and through infiltration of the Republican Party; we have exactly nothing of loyal Americanism today

What I think is interesting is the change in the box cover. When did MB find it necessary to mask Saddam with a beard and mustache, and why?

I am thinking that they did it in response to the First Gulf War but that doesn't really make any sense. I would think that the image of Saddam on the box would have enhanced sales before and after the Gulf War. Considering that Saddam was left in power, and that he was in the news almost daily, then I would think that the manufacturer would recognize that as a marketing advantage. Who would be most likely to want to invade the US?
