Atomic Game Theory: A History of Betrayal

Games provide us with opportunity to create simulated conflicts that let us push at our friends in a safe environment. Stakes can be low when we're playing a game like chess or Tak, but real emotion comes into play when the conflict is based on trust and betrayal. Join host Richard Malena-Webber (Atomic Game Theory) for a wide-ranging look at betrayal and traitor mechanics in games as we try to study the in-game reasons and the out-of-game consequences for stabbing a friend in the back.
