The Suburban Crucible

The Suburban Crucible is a game about institutional racism and the serious impact its subtle influence can have on your life. Written, sort of, as an entry for the Ronnies, but more because the idea grabbed my be the throat and wouldn’t let go.

Yes, this is a game about racial prejudice. But it’s not about violent, hate-filled prejudice, it’s about subtle and insidious prejudice. It’s also a game about relationship friction: how do you reconcile the relationships you have with the one’s you’re building. Finally, it’s a game about choice: when it comes down to him or her, who gets the ax?

Ideally this is a game about difficult choices. It turns out that it does not take much to make the choices easy, and it takes quite a bit of work to make them hard.
