A role-playing game designed to reveal the complexity of urban decision-making as it relates to mass-migration. Developed by Play the City for the Prague reSITE festival in 2016, this game reveals the complexity of the migration challenge for a fictional midsize European city. Players can choose one of 10 roles, each with distinct powers, such as the mayor, activist, journalist, designer, and refugee. Strategize your move, lobby with other players and see how your city takes shape with newcomers. How much influence will your initiative finally have?
