Has anyone ever noticed the amazing similarity between working at LLNS and the board game Paranoia?

Write-up for that game here. Paranoia

What would make you believe that. I see none what so ever on this blog. What I do see is people looking for answers to questions so they can plan their future. ULM's knows the answers to the questions but don't want the worker to know until it's to late. No one at LLNL is ever going to trust management again. Not now and not ever.

I see absolutely no comparison between working here and this game. Please explain what you mean.

Information is on need to know, and you don't know anything.

The rules are contradictory, and the powers that be smack you hard anytime they like.

Huge amounts of infighting and backstabbing.

Secret agendas.

Most of the cool stuff ends up killing you.

Was this game designed by someone at LLNL? More important, where can I find it?

I played this game in my younger years. And yes there are similarities when you have a whacked GM.

Hmmm. "GM" is short for both "Game Master" and the Lab Director.

Coincidence? You be the judge.
