Cafe Meetup 1/21: Taboo practice

Time once again to work on our worldmodel-connectedness skills with Taboo!

Taboo is a board game, but also a rationalist exercise that tests your worldmodel’s ability to maintain a deep understanding across domains. You are required to get others to say a target word, while also restricted from using certain related words from a “prohibited” list.

We’ve found the PlayTaboo site to be a good source of material for playing with, so be ready to pull it up to get prompts. (Because of the large number of attendees we’ve been getting, we’ll probably break into smaller groups.)

In the past, we’ve made custom lists for more rationality themed topics, so bring ideas for that.


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.
