Work Into Play

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

At Games of Berkeley the other day, I met the son of the woman who invented Set. An indexing system meant to help her find patterns of genetic inheritance turned into one of the most replayable and challenging games I've ever played.
