You needed a GM who understood the setting, at least a bit. Executing PCs is no challenge. Miring them so deep in treason and confusion that they seek out a termination booth voluntarily is more like it.

For me, Paranoia used to be the game for the GMs after a rpg event when I was younger ... a bunch of barely conscious/sane players overdosing on caffeine after 24/36 hours of gaming made for memorable ifweird games.

Also treasonous: starting this thread in a general-interest forum when we have a roleplaying-specific forum to use.

About a couple of weeks or so ago I took part in a one shot Paranoia game and the best way to describe how the debriefing of the mission went down would be something like this Practical Philosophy

Wrong link, I think, but I found the one you had in mind.

Looks perfect. Any briefing where only one clone walks out was clearly an interesting one.

I fixed it,thanks.

EDIT: After we got back from a mission that hadn't gone 100%..it started with "One of you is a commie traitor..."
