The theme of a totalitarian regime is a suitable setting for a game of hidden identities, where one side tries to be circulated to as many players as possible (the dissident and the free word) without being revealed by the other side (the informer and the party interests). Of the (too many) regimes to choose from, I chose a leftist one, not because of any political standpoints but because they have an abundance of art and slogans to choose from to create a colorful background.
The dissident, informer and comrade cards were all illustrated with old soviet propaganda posters from Wikimedia, chosen to match official slogans by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, as translated at Soviet Awards.
Citizens of the Soviet Union - strictly adhere to the Constitution of the USSR, the Basic Law of our life!
Young men and women! Persistently educate yourselves in communist convictions! Learn to live, work and struggle as Leninists, as communists!
Long live the valiant Armed Forces of the USSR, standing on watch to guard the victories of October and the peaceful labor of the Soviet people!
Construction workers! Build quickly, durably, economically, and on the basis of contemporary technology! Complete new sites on time!
Long live Soviet women, fervant patriots, active participants in the labor and social life!
Long live the Leninist komsomol, the reliable assistant and fighting reserve of the Communist Party, the vanguard of the young builders of communism!
Agricultural workers! Raise the effectiveness of agricultural production! Make better use of land, technology, fertilizer, and all material resources!
Cultural workers! Give your talent and craftsmanship to the service of the people, to the job of Communism, create works of art worthy our great Motherland!
The dissident role was inspired by all those brave writers in dictatorships all over the world that, with the risk of their lives, have and still spread the free word to their fellow citizens. The informer role was inspired by all those organizations for internal security that not only spy on their own people but also forces them to act as informers on their friends and families. For the words of freedom, I used "glasnost" and "perestroika", known to all who witnessed the reforming and eventual fall of the Soviet Communist Party.
