👍👍”Cryptography rearranges power: it configures who can do
what, from what. This makes cryptography an inherently political tool & it confers on the field an intrinsically moral dimension.”—Phillip Rogaway, The Moral Character of Cryptographic Work https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3162009

As Halloween stories are told & games played, I’m appreciative that @EvilHat & others are teaching tellers & players how encourage safety & consent. X-card, lines & veils, cut & brake, etc. are not PC thought suppression, but instead allow us to explore the rough edges of story. https://twitter.com/EvilHatOfficial/status/1055860356453527553

One of my favorite cooperative board games with a horror theme is “Last Friday”. It is asymmetric—one player plays an invisible summer camp slasher, who alternatively hunts the campers during the night phase or is hunted by the campers during the day. Fun! https://www.google.com/amp/s/arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/05/last-friday-the-board-game-in-which-you-play-a-machete-wielding-maniac/

Wed Oct 31 17:34:30 +0000 2018

My favorite part of the game is the differences in the 4 chapters: it twists the typical Scotland Yard/Fury of Dracula hunter dynamic by having the slasher alternatively hunt or be hunted, and the last two chapters have the presence of a Chosen One to protect or help. Drama!
