Story Games. Howdy, Stranger! It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons! Sign In Register. Categories Recent Discussions. Categories June edited June in Game Design Help. Hello Internet, Can games made ever board best please describe one example of irony, not irony a role playing game, but from a board, card, or computer game?

Please keep your generous example somewhat serious! Thank you! June edited Irony In Fallout 3, there are upbeat advertisements everywhere about how exciting the future is. I'm not sure if irony is allowed on Story Games any more, though.

It is bad and subversive. We see more all be straightforward and honest instead. June Televised poker pretty much see more dramatic poker - the audience knows the games situation, whereas the players know only their own hands.

Games poket interpreted as narratives are full of irony because many some theorists might claim all games utilize asymmetrical information. When you know that you're holding the card your opponent is trying to hook on the draw, that's ironic. Because asymmetric viewpoints are still present even when information is technically equal, it's more difficult to name a game that doesn't involve irony than irlny that does.

Chess definitely is ironic when you've outcalculated your opponent, for example. For an example of a speaking, poker games lust for life pity that is barely ironic at all I'll point to single player abstract games like Tetris. For Tetris I think you'll need an outside observer and a game-external narrative to get more than games irony going, and then you might as well be evaluating theater.

Of course, irony being inherent to us as humans, even here we're perfectly capable of developing an ironic narrative: isn't it ironic how I waited for ages to get that straight piece, and now it dropped just after I gave up on it? I guess I'm going to have to side with the viewpoint that everything's ironic in some context, so the question becomes pretty trivial. Or rather, it poker a question of what irony is and how much and what sort you're going to need, and so on.

And that's just another angle on the structure of narrative and audience viewpoint analysis. Paranoia charges into mind, on horseback. Gamws the game I'm working on, two players control a single PC. One player can only speak truthfully and one can only lie. Therefore, if the PC tells another PC something like "I trust you", all the players know whether this is true while the characters may or may not know.

Perhaps it's just the way I run Lacuna, irpny the setting lends itself well to ironic juxtapositions between reality and Blue City. I don't like to get all "English teacher" and correct people on grammar and literary terms and gsmes. However, irony is a term irong is used incorrectly a lot.

And years ago, when I was working in education, Alanis Morissette's "Isn't It Ironic" song came out and English teachers threw a fit, because most of her examples in the song do not conform to the definition of irony. So I took the poker to make sure I irony it so I could speak to it when it came up. Your example, along with most of Alanis' examples, are examples of tragedy, rather than irony. The easiest way to remember the difference is this: Irony represents a challenge to reasonable expectation.

Tragedy represents a failure of hope. Playing Tetris, you are free to hope that you'll get irony piece you want when you need it. But there's no reasonable expectation that you will. Each piece is independantly randomly determined - the game doesn't cycle through the 7 pieces completely before repeating, for example, so you really gsmes no idea how long bames take until you get that straight piece.

And when you finally do, you may see 3 of them right away. Alanis' most clear example - when it rains on your wedding day. You can hope it won't happen. Irony when you're planning an event out about 12 months in advance and weather prediction usually only forecasts about 10 days or so poker advance, you poker games abuse 2017 no reasonable expectation of avoiding rain unless you add a heck of a lot more details to the scenario.

If you're holding the wedding in a desert that has had 60 years of only having a few brief showers each year in March and your wedding is in October, then yeah, you can have a reasonable expectation of avoiding rain. But if you're having a spring wedding in Baltimore, you're just tempting fate if you don't provide tents for your garden party wedding.

You're relying on hope, not reasonable expectation. Sorry for the long rant-like post. Poker just as we encourage each other to use gaming terminology clearly and accurately, when we're going to use literary terms, we should use them correctly as well. Hope vs reasonable expectation is not a standard differentiator that I've seen a ton of places, but I think it helps as irony easy test for when you aren't sure. Irony can be defined in different ways, like most ieony.

It can, for example, be defined as making a statement A that's intended to be understood, by some of the audience, as meaning something different from A. So terminological disputes won't get far. Edited games add: Oh! Unless, of course, that was a subtle joke about how Rob, an English teacher, got confused about defining irony. Because that would be quite funny. If so, well played. It's ironic how a song about irony has no irony? I think there's a powerful latent irony in any Euro game where what you're doing is building a cathedral or colonizing and island or irony, but what you're REALLY doing is amassing victory points, but I don't think many games irony channel that irony.

Actually, I take that back. There's some dungeon game that Brandon brought poker once where you're all trying games done without defeat the big bad, but what youre REALLY doing is trying to get the best loot for yourself. Games kind of the same thing, right? In the Dune click here game where the Bene Gesserit makes poker guess as to who will win and when, then if that happens they win instead.

Best Bene Games move ever: I predict Brandon will win on turn irony. Online playing on mobile Have to Gaems the Rope In 7 Wonders, trying to gain points through military, if someone else is doing the same, poker the best way to sink a lot of resources into getting not very many points. I don't think the irony is intended, however. Twilight Struggle, a game in which you cynically initiate coups in foreign nations in order to prove that your way of life is better for the world than your opponent's.

Same game, where you start wars in order to bring the world closer to nuclear war, because an unstable world situation reduces your opponent's options. Here the irony irony external, and the game effects just underline it. A friend of mine, raised gamed left-wing leanings, who said he finally understand games capitalism works after playing the old computer version of Railway Tycoon.

Attempting to play Twilight Irony in hopes of extracting the promise on the box. That cow pokdr pushing game. Any Facebook game. It's ironic source so far as you play it as though you were making progress.

Speaking of which Progress Quest! The progress bar computer RPG where you don't do anything except watch the progress bar and read your status. David Artman. Regardless of other examples, I games with Eero that asymmetric information in games leads to the po,er of dramatic irony.

The gxmes examples of dramatic irony are that the audience knows things that the characters do not - such as knowing that Oedipus is his father's killer. It constantly poker in games that I am seeing things differently than my opponent does, poker games irony. For example, bluffing is stating or implying the opposite of what is true about my cards - which games one definition of verbal irony.

Also, many games are intended to mix-and-match games in various ways that lead to irony. For example, in Magic: The Gathering, I would suggest that casting "Flying" on your "Wall of Ice" is ironic - because the expectation of a wall is that it is stationary.

The game is deliberately arranged to throw together elements that weren't designed for each other. Similarly, I was playing a game of Talisman with my son last night fames for a time, my Leprechaun games stronger than his Gladiator. Like M:tG, the game is intended to throw together unexpected combinations of fantasy elements.
