Default Other Groups

As it seems possible that some of the groups might get cut due to being too dated, I thought that it might be worthwhile having a thread to put forth some suggestions for groups to put in instead.

Some groups that exist in the game currently:

Overnight Delivery Services (and give them an extra bonus to destroy the post office).
Reality Shows (and as much as I want don't want to admit it, they're even more prevalent now than they were - and might even deserve another arrow).
Coffee Shops (probably needs an outgoing arrow and a higher income).

One that still cracks me up every time I see the illustration that I'm going to advocate for including is Kiddie TV. (Bjorne!)

Warehouse 23 seems like it would make a spiffy candidate for a promo card (and you might even consider replacing The Men in Black with another card so it also can be used as a promo card).

A couple that doesn't exist, but might be worth considering are Health Care Insurers (be sure to use Gold Cross in the illustration) and Social Media.

Two that come to mind might be:

Science Deniers - not really powerful, but they seem to have friends in government right now.

Rogue Agency - no real power of income, but they need an ability that reflects their tendency to undercut the "official story" wrt science and nature.

A good candidate for inclusion IMO. Maybe give them some sort of a bonus if they control some certain groups.

So perhaps there should be a "this has really happened" rule: "Don't be silly, the Science Deniers could never end up controlling the… oh."
