Open Secrets: The Game of Wikileaks (Beta)

April 5, 2013

After re-reading Bill Keller’s awesome article on the NYTimes’ dealings with Assange, was interested enough to go diving subsequently into all of the Times coverage in the collected Open Secrets volume that they released a few years back.

Keller’s article is particularly great since it details the drawn out battle of wills that took place during 2010 and into 2011 between the government, the press, and Wikileaks as the Cablegate story unfolded.

It struck me that the strategic situation might work great as a tabletop game, so started working on it in my off-hours over the past few months. The beta version of the ruleset for that game is available here as of today.

I’ll plan to post updated versions here as we playtest it over in San Francisco over the coming weeks. Drop a line to tim@timhwang.org if you want to stay posted on it as we develop it out and make tweaks.
