Quote from lunde »I think this is a hard one to comment on without seeing what’s happening directly. The other thing that could be a possibility is that maybe the deals your proposing don’t actually make sense.
I think the better people get at assessing threats themselves the less politics happens. Politics thrive in low level games because threat assessment seems much more ambiguous. Once people get better at assessing threats for themselves the number of opportunities to sway someone’s actions drops dramatically. They still exist but they are fewer and far between, and overdealing gets annoying, especially when one player is constantly tricking the least experienced player into bad threat assessment situations.
