Look at her physical moves...She wants to be a famous "indie video game person" juggernaut...
She wants to be so famous and respected that people pay huge piles of cash to have her involved with their projects (like Chris Avelone, pre #metoo). She wants to be the person representing "video games" in congress and the UN forever. She wants to be the person receiving the rewards and accolades...
Started in MA - "indie videogame"
Moved to Seattle - videogames AND related 'culture'
Moved to LA - popular performance media
Videogames and boardgames and all that are just the substrate the grift is operating on -- she wants to be a "personality" .
I suppose she's actually making a decent run at it by leveraging whatever she can and cannibalizing whomever she can
The Betrayal at House on the Hill expansion is a great example (for those not familiar with it, there are these little narrative scenarios) BOTH Anita and Zoe wrote scenarios .
Now out of all the actual game designers and authors and personalities that could have been recruited...they BOTH were in that!?!
you can't really say it was due to their involvement in the gaming field, their writing background, etc
I guess you could say they are both experts in constructing fictional narratives...it's pretty obvious why
I mean talk about 'diversity' -- not there, WoC has become pretty monocultural
and in classic Zoe style, Betrayal just happened to be her dream game :"I had the honor of writing a haunt for one of my favorite board games of all time, the board game that made me fall in love with board games again as an adult "
