In this episode, Brian, Josue and I discuss the concepts of Analysis Paralysis and Anticipation of Play. At a recent convention I had the realization that there is a familiar cartography of states of mind during game play. If we can talk about the states of mind we enter when gaming, and talk about how we respond to those states of mind, then we will find a better way to ‘be’ in games, and ultimately a more peaceful way of addressing our world. I’m not sure that we can go from Concordia to World Peace, but its a start right? So check out the discussion and let us know what you think. What are the states of play that you experience and how do they impact your perception of events around you? Drop us a note on the forums, or tweet out at us.
