Mob Mentality Party Card Game Up On Kickstarter

31 August 2017 - 2:00pm
People in groups act in interesting ways. There’s actually a whole field of study based on it. Some people know how to handle groups of people, figure out what they’re thinking, and move them in certain directions (literally and metaphorically). It’s trying to figure out what people are thinking and joining in that you’ll be […]
