Comic Josh Gondelman and artist Molly Roth share a list of just a few of their favorite games that adults play. Simon says . . . no, really, please stop.
SIMON CAN’T STOP SAYING THINGS ABOUT POLITICS
Number of players: 2, or as many as can logistically engage in a single conversation
Description of gameplay: Any number of players may participate in this game, time and space permitting. One player (Simon) just goes on and on about his or her political opinions. Other players may nod quietly, disagree, or leave the room.
Game ends when…: Victory is declared for Simon when all opponents walk away to get a drink, or when the first opponent says: “Can we just talk about something else for a while?” Simon loses when forced to concede: “You know, I’d never thought of it that way.”
