Retweeted by Jane McGonigalWhere should you live to escape climate change? Welcome to Boise! just spent an hour talking secret identities & ninja bodies with the supersmart supertalented hosts of @braincandypod! Check them out :) @anildash -- of how relaxing it is to babies to be rocked, bounced or driven in a car over a bumpy road. I try to become that baby :) @anildash oh no! where are you flying today? when I'm in a lot of turbulence I refer to it as my "therapeutic rocking chamber" and I think--Check out #EpicOrphan, a game where you can join the fight against nuclear weapons! @realityblurred yes definitely! @realityblurred..."build a super-majority" as a mechanic is probably fundamentally disadvantaging anyone perceived as minority. so that's it @realityblurred at some point, the central mechanic of Survivor the game is 'build a super-majority each week" (unless you have an idol)... @realityblurred there's only so much you can expect of players in an environment where majority gangs up on one person each week @realityblurred there has not been enough innovation in game rules to support evolution of the game, too much aggressive "gameplay" early on @realityblurred to be honest I'm ALMOST to the point of feeling like the social darwinism of Survivor has reached its limits as a game @realityblurred also it would be great to see a "minority-majority" cast like the United States is becoming anyway. that's the biggest fix @realityblurred like: "In the past 10 seasons there's been a pattern, and it's not in the spirit of the game, just be mindful" @realityblurred I think 1) you could make players aware of this pattern before they go as part of the orientation they get, just a head's up @realityblurred I have spent so much time thinking about how this could be addressed officially by the's really hard...So exciting to see games and VR used in this context. Imagine what good can come!
