Do we really have free will? Who decides this? Are we controlled by
what we hear and what we see, even while thinking we decide freely? Insider is a
game that deals with these questions. While communicating to others, you have to
find the right answers to a quiz or find the “insider” who is manipulating
the discussion. The insider will do everything to hide their identity while
misleading the others.
In more detail, players are assigned roles at random. One player is the
“master”, and they secretly select a word from a set given in a deck of
cards. (In a variant given in the rulebook, they can freely select and write
down a word.) The “insider” player, whose role is not known to the other
players, will then secretly view the word. The rest of the players are known as
“commons”. The commons then have approximately five minutes in which to ask
the master “yes” or “no”-type questions so that they can deduce the
secret word. The insider attempts to secretly lead the commons towards the
correct word. If the commons fail to guess the correct word,
If, however, the word is correctly guessed in the allowable time, the master
flips the sand timer, and the commons and master have until the sand runs out to
discuss the game and deduce the identity of the insider. If they guess
correctly, they win the game together; if they do not, the insider wins.
