Episode 33 - Playing a Jerk

Episode 33 - Playing a Jerk

Can you play a jerk without ruining other people's fun?

In 'Body Corporate', which we played at Phenomenon 2010, I, Emma, played a jerk.
It's true.

Liz played my wife. While we were in the game, I pretty much ruined her fun. Unintentionally, mind you. Honest!

Using this experience, plus a few hypotheticals from other games - D&D for instance - and improvisational theatre, we discuss ways that you can *play* a jerk without *being* a jerk.
