This twist in Never Have I Ever is a card based conversation game exploring what actions you and your friends consider to be crossing an ethical line. What does it feel like to assess your own actions based on their moral code?
There is a long tradition of non-violence among philosophers dating back to Jainism in India in 550 BCE, Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832), and, more recently, Lorie Gruen (1962- ) and Peter Singer (1946- ), all of whom meditated on the causes and effects of casual acts of violence. In this game, players assess the violence of their actions through the lens of the individual codes of ethics proposed by other players. Is there a common understanding of pacifism in the group? Can non-violence exist on an individual level?
