I am a pensioner and was offered a job as a Memory Coach. You may watch my lecture topic, the Memory Cards of a Generational War Game at my blog www.https://fonaklap.hu/zero-sunspot-heroes.html - I found out (while searching ancestors) that Karl Mannheim (once among the Founders of UNESCO) was an ancestor of mine (1893-1947) and he had a Theory of the Cyclical Recurring in Each Century of 4 Different Generational Attitudes - today known as Strauss-Howe Theory of Generations. His Theory was used in the Pentagon by RAND scientists to create a "Generational War Game" in the form of a Card deck (with a story board as a terrain) which may help those who want to develop their Memory. I would like to make some PR or maybe print a few packs of the Mannheim Generational War Game Cards and its Ancestral Quotes Cards from your donations.
Card Game’s Name: ANCESTRAL DREAM WAR GAME
Hommage á Karl Mannheim
SMALL CARD DECK.
PLAYER1 and 2 EACH PULLS A CARD(It can be any Year from 1870-to 1970)
Twenty Years = a Generation.
FAther/Son relation are in a relation with the next generational Twenty Year sas ENEMY GROUPS: RED GROUP
GRANDFATHER and GRANDCHILD relations (age distances – 40 years or more) are Friend Groups: BLUE GROUP
Whenthey pull the next card it is either ENEMY of FRIEND.
If between the two players ONE has a Father/Son Generation and the other has a Grandparent Generation (in relation to each other – the other cards pulled can be used later as Friendly Partners (with heir respecive Ancestoral Dream Cards) or as an Enemy Spy.
Each meaningful CARD PULLED (if the two NAME has a known friendship or JUST ONE YEAR difference or they are many generations away but we know thy are IDOL RELATIONS – it means 10 POINTS if it isthe SAME GENERATION AS the PLAYER ithas a value of 30 POINTS. We only pull until we have ONE FOR US and athe Opposite PLAYER (PLAYER 2) has an Enemy (distanced) CARD – from either Generation- it can be Father, Son or Great-Grandfather (like 1870- 1930) or even a greater difference may be pulled but we do need 2 Groups (minimally). ENEMY and FRIEND (RED and BLUE). Of course the 2 Groups maybe played by a solitary player too.
We also must chose the CONFLICT SITE – each Century we have Two Conflict Sites. These are FAmous Assassinations or Suicides. (Difference: 44/45 years)
The LIST of the CONFLICT SITES is: 1889- CROWN PRINCE RUDOLF kills MaryVetsera
1934: Hitler pays terrorists (With the intermediary of Horthy the Hungarian Governor) to kill the Serb King (Alex II) and French Foreign Minister BArthou1979: Lord Mountbatten (Uncle of Queen Elisabeth II)the Ex-Vice-Roy of India was murdered by IRA through Lybia.
We can go backwards having crisis sites each 44/5 years: 1844: Smith, Mormon leader killed, (Kossuth planned to be murdered). 1799: NApoléon I. feigns an attempt at his life to start a putch. 1754. Chief Tachanarison kills Captain Jumonville. 1709. Shogun Tokugawah Tsunayoshi dies (may be murdered). 1664. Count Zrinski dies - a boar has killed him. 1619. The Vienna murder of the Vizier Kara Mehmed. 1574. prince Louis de Nassau-Orange dies in battle and disappears. 1529. Archbishop Wolsey is demoted by Henry the VIIIth - a death warrant is issued. (In each case we pull a new XX Century small deck card - as a Hero and another one as Antagonist from a Great-Grandfatherly Generation and each gets its Decade Innovation Dream from 4 centuries.)
BIG DECK OF CARDS: We are using as our „Forces” the 4 different Century with our Ancestors Names (and their Messianic Rabbi friends who are learning the Bible and inspiring each a Decade Innovation)
We do use first the very same Decade (from each Century/Colour) – 1500s Clubs, 1600s Batons, 1700s Diamonds 1800s Cups as we have pulled for the Main Hero who is now looking for advice in his dreams (dreamed by his ancestors – focusing on the Drawings Depicting the Decade Invention.)
As I cannot change my original video I made a new one and put up its link here:
