Have you heard of an online game called Among Us? It is a multi-player online game that came out in 2018 that involves both teamwork and betrayal.
Description from their website:
One crewmate has been replaced by a parasitic shapeshifter. Their goal is to eliminate the rest of the crew before the ship reaches home. The Impostor will sabotage the ship, sneak through vents, deceive, and frame others to remain anonymous and kill off the crew.
While everyone is fixing up the ship, no one can talk to maintain anonymity. Once a body is reported, the surviving crew will openly debate who they think The Impostor is. The Impostor's goal is to pretend that they are a member of the crew. If The Impostor is not voted off, everyone goes back to maintaining the ship until another body is found. If The Impostor is voted off, the crew wins!
It sounds like a fun game, but I've never played it. I only heard of it last week because a teacher-friend allowed her home-room to play it once a week, with permission from parents. How would you feel about your tween child playing this game?
Here's an odd story. A man named Michael Rocca won a 1 million dollar instant ticket game in May of 2000. He took his payments in annual installments with his last installment being in May of 2020. Fast forward one year, May, 2021. He again won a million dollar lottery jackpot! How's that for lucky? I can't even win one! But then again, I don't play the lottery. Maybe I should. Someone has to win!
