A man designed a board game, built it out of titanium and then buried it before anyone played it. Learn why.
Jason Rohrer, has developed a game designed to be played by people he'll never know.
Rohrer hasn't played it himself, he says, and has buried the game, designed to survive thousands of years, in the Nevada desert, making it likely that no one will ever play it.
It's called A Game for Someone. The game was inspired by ancient board games like Mancala, as well as the architects and builders who, over hundreds of years, constructed religious cathedrals that they themselves would never set foot in, never see completed in their lifetimes.
If it all turns out as planned, people in the future will be able to have a little bit of fun with something made in our lifetime. How cool is that?
