I'd like to have a list of "real" issues to debate, rather than color+agenda... I think it would be more fun.
Category: Nuclear non-Proliferation
Issue: "Israeli nuclear weapons plant inspections"
Category: Trade Sanctions
Issue: "eCommerce Sanctions against Iceland"
Category: Humanitarian Concerns
Issue: "Halliburton's participation in Akkadian Empire reconstruction"
We actually considered doing something just like this.
Once we decided upon the very useful ISSUE DISKS that the Secretary General would be using to move issues from the "Table" to the "Floor" for debate, however, there was no way to effectively represent all of that information.
This was a decision to go with "Function" over "Form". These types of decisions need to happen very often with games.
However, if a very enterprising person would like to create 30 such issues, these could then be posted in the files section here on the geek. It would make for some very interesting table talk if you had to say "I want Nuclear Weapons Plant Inspections in this proposal" over "I want RED in this proposal".
Would be interesting to see if people actually stayed "in character" and used these thematic terms...
