Welp, I'm tearing up just reading the guide, which means it's doing its job.
I know this will be hard for me to pitch to anyone who would take it as seriously as I would want to but I think that, with the right partner, this could be a really good, solemn contemplation of the way it is we live. Honestly I think just the written instructions and introduction could and should be read by -- everyone, maybe around high school age, even if they don't go so far as to play out the game. Which I think I saw someone else say (rightfully) about Together We Build Private Cathedrals, and is often true about your (/Roswell's/who am I talking to it's always weird to write comments that are addressed to everyone) work.
I absolutely love the Battleship mechanics as a way of picking questions.
