Since Donald Trump took office, game designer Mike Selinker has analyzed the resultant chaos through the lens of game theory. Backed by scholarly primers by mathematician Richard Malena-Webber, Mike describes the link between poker and the North Korean arms race, details how to safeguard abortion rights by modeling combat simulations, and reveals the two magic words that will impeach Trump. Mike’s essays supply a coping strategy for dealing with the rise of fascism in America. Hey, it beats screaming all the time.
