Actually, the two Steve Jacksons have never worked together on the Illuminati games. The Austin, TX based Steve Jackson Games had one card-based Illuminati game in the early 80's, inspired by Robert Anton Wilson & Robert Shea's Illuminatus! Trilogy. The second game, getting all this attention, was INWO which was developed more as a trading card game along the lines of Magic: The Gathering.

Just want to say I saw a billboard advertising this game in London in the first half of 1990 or earlier. At the time I had already read Robert Anton Wilson's books & others, so I realised what it meant. Looking at Wikipedia's short reference it seems there is an english & an american Steve Jackson doing the same thing & working together. I find it hard to believe there not the same person. Someone posted on YouTube that Steve Jackson's father worked for Exxon & so was probably privelege to insider information of the illuminati's plans. (Steve Jackson being the creator of the game)
