DescriptionThis game is meant to simulate advantages and disadvantages of knowing certain information in a society or not. For example, when submerging yourself into a different culture than what you belong to, you are sometimes unprivileged from the starting point because of the fact that you don't know the implicit "rules" of the society. In this game, by giving some players various "privileges" and disadvantages to some, the players can experience the frustration (or maybe the pleasure) of being in those positions.
