    Agore Fellows Presents: Debate Balloon

    The Debate Balloon is an engaging role-playing group activity where participants assume the persona of historical figures from the distant past to recent times. The premise of the story is that the world below has ended and the players find themselves on a balloon ascending to a new world. However, the balloon starts going down instead of up. The main solution open to the participants is to decide who gets to stay on the balloon. Each player introduces their character and gives a case for why they should stay. At the end of each round, one person leaves the balloon while still being able to vote in subsequent rounds. The game continues until the final individual has been determined!
    This event is hosted by PPD's Agora Fellows.
    Date: April 3, 2023
    Times: 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
    Audience: Students
    Venue: Room 2518 A in the Carolina Union
