ITE College Central, People’s Association Youth Movement and the Singapore Cybersports & Online Gaming Association are proud to announce the inaugural “Guardians of the City” (GOTC) card game tournament at Campus Game Fest from 18 – 19 November 2017 at ITE College Central!
GOTC is a Total Defence strategy card game that helps students recognise the complexity of terror threats and how they can play their part to keep Singapore safe and secure. It is best played with two players, each representing a country, fighting a common terrorist threat, while trying to keep their citizen’s support strong. The game has been well-received by students and educators since its launch in February 2017. Some schools have played it at the cohort level, with a few even organising their very own GOTC competitions!
