One week in class we played Ladies & Gentlemen. I was a gentleman and had a lot of fun doing the fast-paced stock market. The hardest part of the game for me was waiting on the women side. On my side of the table, we always got through our parts really fast and then waited forever for the women side. I enjoyed all of the jokes the gentlemen were making in the role play, however it got really boring waiting on the women to make decisions. I assume though that that is just how the game goes.
I think some of my friends would like to play this game who like strategic play, but also a faced paced other side of the table. I have friends who I know would like the ladies side and I have friends who I know would like the gentlemen side. In particular I think my friend Joe would really get into the role play and enjoy this game.
Our session went well; however, we were unable to finish the whole game. I liked the stock market aspect. However, it was rather boring at times waiting on the ladies. I wish the tasks per side were more equal in timing. The gentlemen always got our part done and then had to wait around for the ladies.
In terms of leadership, we discussed making everyone feel comfortable to be included. We discussed how in our roleplay many of us assumed we had social identities of people who are in the majority. Very few if anyone assumed their character had a disability or other social identity that would put them in the minority in the setting.
