A Force More Powerful™

A Game-Based Experimentation and Training Tool for Socio-Political Change

Your goal is to orchestrate a nonviolent resistance campaign from the ground up against dictators, occupiers, authoritarians and oppressive rule. You are supported by the principles and experiences of some of the world's leading nonviolent activists such as, Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ivan Marovic, subject matter expert on A Force More Powerful, and member of Otpor, the Serbian resistance movement that played a critical role in ousting Slobodan Milosevich. To accomplish this you must assemble a team, build public support, and then recognize and gradually influence the pillars of support within the regime to bring about enduring social change.
