Bundle of Holding - Paranoia (2004 Mongoose Edition)

This is for the 2004 Mongoose version of Paranoia, which I have no experience with. That being said, if you pay more than the average, it includes updates to some of the classic originals:  Flashbacks (retail $24): This must-have 256-page mission collection presents classic 1980s PARANOIA missions updated for the 2004 edition. Learn why Vapors Don't Shoot Back, which citizens get The YELLOW Clearance Black Box Blues, when to Send in the Clones, and what to do when Something Falls Off.

I was already "in"as of last night.

Paranoia, for me at least, is as much fun to read as it is to run ;)


  1. While I have fond memories of the various West End Games Paranoia editions (well some of them) I found the Mongoose Paranoia to be just as supremely playable as the original. One of the more controversial items "perversity points" is easily ignored. (Though I loved it. I believe it was stripped in the a subsequent edition, which otherwise is nearly identical.)

  2. I played in one-shot of Paranoia back about 10 years ago. I have no idea whether it was the WEG or Mongoose version, since I had no rulebook or anything. So this is the first time I've ever seen a Paranoia rulebook, even though I have played the game.

  3. I keep seeing old (still shrink-wrapped) modules on the back shelf at a game store near me for abut $5. But I never see the actual game.
