I wanted to find a little more information about the Illuminati card game. It has the knack for exposing/predicting future events. So to really dig into the card game itself one has to ask about the man/creator behind the card game.
There is plenty of information about Steve Jackson and his games but so far could not find any information about the birth of Steve Jackson, his parents, where he lived, who his friends are or were, elementary, middle, or high school. It seems that he just appears a college boy all grown up with not a backstory to be found.

Seems strange right? Well even stranger is there is another Steve Jackson. You may say of course there is there is a current NFL player named Steve Jackson, a former NBL player, a rugby player, a thriller writer, a mathematician, but you will be surprised to also know that there is another game designer in the UK by the name of … you guessed it Steve Jackson.

The funny thing is the Steve Jackson in the UK is only 2 years older than the Steve Jackson game designer from the US. They even wrote on the same game book. Fighting Fantasy was a series of role playing books created by the UK Steve Jackson. When they wanted to expand they hired writers; one of them Steve Jackson from the US. Funny enough in the book series it is never stated that the Steve Jackson was anyone different from the creator. This would be something that most people would clarify in other books.

There is a lot of strange things about Steve Jackson but ultimately someone that creates an Illuminati card game that literally predicts events throughout the wording and imagery of the cards will have some other creepy things going on. This is something to ponder and will be something that I will continue to research. If you have any information feel free to email me at derekdavisart at gmail dot com.
