Tabletop Tuesdays: Decoding the Game of Love at Hohbach Hall


Date and Time 
February 21, 2023

Within the context of LoveData Week, this event explores board games that model or simulate the human emotion of love. These games are intended as entertainment but can also function as data simulations modeling complex relationships and complicated social contexts. In this event, we will evaluate the usefulness of such simulations in modeling human emotions in general and we will examine the specific data points chosen as part of both games. What is really being modeled/studied here? What can we learn from the simulations of human behavior that are on display? What data points are not present in these games?

Tabletop Tuesdays is an event series held on the third Tuesday of each month. At these events, we'll feature a selection of board games and collection items from across SUL's holdings around a specific theme. Drop in to learn about the month's featured game(s) and/or try some of the board games we have for open play at the Silicon Valley Archives.
