Wherein your local chamber of commerce lets its hair down

Looking to buy Boardwalk and Park Place? How about Torrance, California's Mulligan Family Fun and Golf Practice Center or the dental offices of Gary D. Weber in Sterling, Colorado? If you've spent time in the board game section of your local thrift store, you might be familiar with Wheeler Dealer, a Monopoly-like board game designed by a Michigan production company and localized for over 1,200 cities and towns across North America (long before localized editions of Monopoly existed). Marketed to rotary clubs, chambers of commerce, and other civic organizations as a fundraiser that would boost civic pride while supporting local business, the game board featured small ads, complete with businesses' phone numbers, on each space. But did the idea pan out? A resident of Brookfield, IL isn't so sure. [more inside]

Why did ancient Egypt spend 3000 years playing a game nobody else liked?

Maybe people have changed, and today we want different things from games than the ancient Egyptians wanted from Senet. Maybe they found the shuffling rhythms of the game of passing to be thrilling, or at least true: the smallness of human life captured against the unchanging vastness of the landscape of the gods.

Curbing toxic game culture

League of Legends has 67 million players and grossed an estimated US$1.25 billion in revenue last year. But it also has a reputation for toxic in-game behaviour, which its parent company, Riot Games in Los Angeles, California, sees as an obstacle to attracting and retaining players. So the company has hired a team of researchers to study the social — and antisocial — interactions between its users.

The most heroic word in all languages is PASTRAMI ON RYE

So on the night of the New Hampshire primary, MSNBC's Chris Hayes accidentally referred to the democratic socialist senator running for President as "Bernie Sandwiches". There was much guffawing, punnery and memeing. And now it's a game, for iOS and Android. The staff from All In w/ Chris Hayes is reportedly entranced. (Note: the Bernie Sanders caricature in the game comes from DonkeyHotey, though it's used without attribution.)

“...we shed light on the scale of the role we play in killing...”

Hard Numbers Reveal Scale of America’s Trophy-Hunting Habit by Rachael Bale [National Geographic]
Sport hunters, those who kill animals for recreation rather than out of necessity, imported more than 1.26 million trophies to the U.S. in the decade from 2005 through 2014, according to a new analysis of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s import data by Humane Society International and the Humane Society of United States. That’s an average of 126,000 trophy imports a year, or 345 a day.

Even the title of the game was plagiarized.

ProbablyRichard spends an hour discussing the PC adventure game Limbo of the Lost. A game so bad and so terribly produced that "when the plagiarism was first discovered, many were incredulous that the developers could actually get away with such blatant copyright violation. Some posited that it may be an ARG (Alternate Reality Game)." and was eventually disowned by every person associated with it.

What can change the nature of a man?

Often considered to have the best writing of any game, 1999's Planescape Torment (as can be seen in this short video) is getting a spiritual successor. Torment: Tides of Numenera, now in early beta (the first 30 minutes of which can be seen in this Let's Play), features many of the same writers (plus other favorites). To see what made the first game so great, fans have turned the original Planescape game into surprisingly readable novels. One version just contains mostly the dialogue for one particular path through the game with just a little linking text (457 pages worth), the other features an expanded version with more original material (1,219 pages). Both are available in a variety of formats, and you can buy the original game as well.

"Pinball Palace was a small, almost hidden place...
