Who’s Hitler?

For the second week of class, we played Secret Hitler. Much like Avalon last week. Secret Hitler is also a hidden role game pitting liberals against Hitler and his fascists in a bid to get their party’s policies through government. Having previous experience with this game, the hardest part for me was trying to lead my team to victory without drawing too much attention to myself lest I risk getting killed. If I’m too outspoken, the other party would view me as the figurehead and by getting rid of me could bring down my party. This is also a part of leadership, knowing when to talk and when to hold your tongue. Leaders need to be able to motivate through their words and actions but also need to be able to sit back and listen to others. For much the same reason as last time, my friend Josh would like this game and in fact he owns his own copy.
