Bullets & Ballots Game Analysis
Migration of Power
Lauren Pardue - F - 1 April 2016
What The Game Was About:
The game was about Guatemala, and the transition of power between the five different groups: Guerrillas, Peasants, Guatemalan Government, Army & Wealthy, and the United States. The 3 day activities showed how power moves from different groups, how people migrate from different groups, and how some people who have nothing can mean everything to some people. The Army & Wealthy had the most money and MSUs, while the Peasants had nothing. Even though they had nothing, the Guerrillas needed the Peasants the most. The Army & Wealthy needed everyone's support, and the Guatemalan Government just needed anybody that would keep them in power. With this game, it gave everyone that played it a good understanding that 'humans migrate, create cultural mosaics, and balance the forces of cooperation and conflict among different social groups.'
