@alechayosh07 I'm in the exact same position and I was wondering the same thing. I'm back-and-forth between betrayer meaning that I betrayed the guardians and that's the guardians labeling me as a betrayer because I moved to the marginalia, or if somehow I left the marginalia and the marginalia are labeling me as a betrayer. I would assume that maybe it's the first option for both of us because we stayed loyal to the group that we were with so I don't know why it would be any different, but I'm not exactly sure.

@mangoman, I agree, I feel like I would be disappointed if the game just ended abruptly and that was it. Like you said, I would feel like a pawn, I would feel like I was just going through the motions and doing what I had to do. So I'm hoping for Chisnell to reveal a more complex meaning to this game that we haven't seen yet. And we can see how the moves we made and the things we did affected the game in the long run.

I personally believe that Chisnell is going to provoke a war between the two factions.

I agree, as chapter 15 is the last chapter for EoT, we still have 2-3 weeks of school left, so it begs the question; what now? I think if not a war, we will have these last few weeks to engage in game play rather than having to worry about the requirement portion of the class. That in and of it self is good incentive to play, because I find myself too worried about the requirements to actually play the game, despite the fact I think it would be really fun!

@persephone -  I find myself in the same position. I am always too worried about points and meeting the denominator to actually attempt to play the game. I feel like there must be something involved with this final project that was introduced in class this week and I am so interested to see how it all turns out. We are almost at the finish line!

@username27 This is exactly how I did the class. I always felt that if i focused on the game, I wouldn’t have time to do all of the assignments I already had in my plate. I did the game in the very beginning, but I soon stopped playing because to me it was pointless and a waste of time because I had so much other work to do. Maybe incorporate if the game better into the assignments would make it more engaging.
