Discussion article for the meetup : Berkeley meetup: Hermeneutics!
This Wednesday's meetup will feature Hermeneutics!, a brand-new game invented by Scott Siskind. You can read about it on his blog:
The purpose of the game is to see how easy it is to come up with plausible false arguments, and how plausible such arguments can sound coming from others. As far as I know, this may be the first time the game has ever been played. Doors open at 7pm, and we'll start playing the game at 7:30pm.
