Social games...

Ready or not, here are the next set of discussion questions!

In this week's workshop, we'll be playing 3 games which exhibit emergent social play: Little Max, Mafia, and Stand Up. Choose one of these games, and answer the following questions:
  1. Describe the social interactions which you observed during play. In what way did these interactions emerge from within the formal elements of the game?

  2. Using Sutton-Smith's categorization of social play roles, discuss how the players' roles changed during the course of the game.

  3. Suggest a modification to the game which will alter the social dynamics that emerge during play.
You should also share your initial ideas for assignment 2 on your blog.
