Cafe Meetup 9/10: The Schelling Game

It’s been too long! We’ll practice our coordination-without-communication by playing the Schelling Game. We take turns announcing a category, then everyone else picks a member of that category, trying to pick the same thing as everyone else (Examples: restaurant -> McDonald’s, river -> Colorado). You get a point for every time you pick the most popular value, unless everyone else picks it.

It practices your ability to reason about common knowledge. Hope to see you there!


The meetup is at Central Market, 4001 N. Lamar, in the cafe area. Look for the LW and SSC signs. People start arriving at 1:30 pm, and the main activity will begin at 2:30 pm. Please follow posted guidance and notices in the store.
