BGB Podcast #77 – What You Don’t Know Can’t Hurt You

Out of sight, out of mind.

This week we’re talking about hidden trackable information. That is, information about the game state that could be remembered or recorded, but the game design (usually) assumes that players haven’t. Is it okay to memorize or divulge this information? Before we take notes, we also talk about Papà Paolo, Oceanos, and Pax Pamir (Second Edition).
