After the Game

August 15th, 2015

What is fair to carry over between games? Can I promise to try to hose you next game if you keep frustrating my goals in this one? Can I remember that you're the kind of person who keeps their word in-game? What's the right metagamethics to have here?

In the comments on my last gaming post I think we figured out a pretty good answer: you can only carry over single-person things, not anything pairwise. It's fine to build up a reputation over many games as someone who always tries to hoard the cheese, but it's not fine to make a deal with your sister that every game you play in you'll never place the robber on each other.
