Ethea Bored Game

A kitsch board game to be played alone.

This board game can be played alone, so instead of a competitive conflict betwixt adverse players, the single player of this board game can choose paths through the conflicting ethea of other people.

The Ethea Bored Game begins like most board games at a point of origin, and then navigates through the dominant rational systems of the respective player types. Will the player navigate to predestined first place through a structured series of rational choice decisions with the paranoia that someone is watching with the rules, or a wide variety of other player types? These will be featured in later editions.

       So it's sort of 'Monopoly: The Honor System Edition'? 'Cos that's been tried, and it turned out that Big Brother wasn't watching very closely...

       Sounds a lot like a boardgame version of the “multiple endings” feature common to many video games.   

       [+] I’d love to see the board – enough half-baking, just draw it!

       People who relate what you do to their own knowledge base and determine if they will reproduce functionalism or if your functionalism should not be produced by even you.

       Giving someone the winning idea and then losing the game. The dominus spiritus.

       Exploring the subjecispace of possibilities.

       A player that follows one book of rules, and a player that follows multiple books of rules for the same game. Outcome of playing determines what book methodology is used

       A player that plays based on the physical features of the board, and one that plays based on the rule book.

       A player that plays to be alone, and one that plays to win friends.

       I like the concept of bored games.

       On some level the bored game could be a fast food outlet or a maze like furniture store called Idea.
