At Le Day Job, I've created a role-play exercise, CRITIQUE THIS ELEPHANT, to teach better design critique skills to my coworkers.
Half the group were designers with a design to be critiqued (in this case an incorrectly drawn elephant). The other half were critics. Each critic had instructions to embody a bad critiquing practice. We then roleplayed critiquing the elephants, with a facilitator correcting the critics on unhelpful feedback.
Anyone else used roleplay to train coworkers?
This was challenging & useful. https://jamesmendezhodes.com/blog/2019/2/14/may-i-play-a-character-from-another-race

I'm going to be running casual, pub night D&D, and I wonder what other people do to make this a good experience for the players. #dnd
How do you adapt #DnD-type games for casual play in distracting environments?
Last night's gaming equippage. Ended up playing Tomato Mato, A Fake Artist Goes to New York, and the Grizzled. The Grizzled is an outstanding co-op game if ya haven't tried it. #boardgames
That Nordic larp about alcoholism where you die when the bottle is empty is still the best game mechanic I've ever seen.
New blog post with three hacks of Eclipse Phase: last week's Black Hack version, and new versions based on Into the Odd and Spiralis (via Cthulhu Dark). Hopefully this gets the compulsion to hack this game out of my system for a while! https://pretendo.games/2018/12/11/resleeving-eclipse-phase/ #diceblog
Inspired by @JasonT posting the Basilisk Hack for Black Hack/EP, here's an Eclipse Phase/Fiasco playset I made quite a while ago & have been sitting on for obscure reasons. https://www.dropbox.com/s/eonw1j6ofs2oa6c/fiasco_scum_barge_2018.pdf?dl=0
