Coffee with Comrades

Nov 27, 2018

This week, Pearson picked the brain of TL, founder of Out of Order Games and developer of Bloc by Bloc: The Insurrection Game. But first, Bree and Pearson tackle a busy news week.

Bloc by Bloc: The Insurrection Game is a semi-cooperative strategy board game inspired by twenty-first century riots and revolutions. The game features hidden agendas, deep strategy, area control, asymmetrical player abilities, and a special method for randomly generating billions of unique city layouts. Pearson and TL spend the hour discussing the game’s roots in anarchism, the way Bloc by Bloc’s design synthesizes game mechanics and political philosophy, the colonialist roots of many contemporary tabletop games, and the necessity of leisure and play in the struggle for a better world.
