    I agree it is boring for average persons. But if you are analytical and scientific, modeling world around you is of utmost importance, which often translates into success. You must understand the world to participate in it and win. I don't mean to offend you by saying you're average. We are all different. I wouldn't share it if it didn't impress me. Cheers.

    I liked this game a lot. It really shows you how untrustworthy people can gain power and "clone themselves". However it also helps you understand some real life skills when dealing with people.

    All in all I had some great fun with this game.

    Yes. I also agree with you in that it requires a certain personality to be able to enjoy this type of game :D

    @Fragmaster When you decide to post something, other people may dislike it. If you can't stand that notion, you shouldn't share things you like. @Weirdest didn't provoke you personally but you responded with a personal attack. That's not a community building spirit.

    I immediately edited my response to more adequate/elaborate version of what i think. I don't think i attacked or insulted anyone.

    "You're incapable of analytical thinking but don't take that as an insult" isn't exactly my definition of friendliness :D

    No. Analytical person is person who analyzes everything. I never said he is incapable.

    I said that analytical and scientific persons love modeling.

    I just wanted to communicate to you you why unwarranted aggressiveness is not being constructive in a wide and diverse community like ours. I don't think you did it on purpose, otherwise I'd have taken a different course of action from the get go.

    This is from the game:

    "This is why "miscommunication" is such an interesting barrier to trust: a little bit of it leads to forgiveness, but too much and it leads to widespread distrust! I think our modern media technology, as much as it's helped us increase communication... has increased our miscommunication much more. "

    I guess the first sentence can be applied to the OP vs jazzc convo above too. :)
