This week there's an article on social contracts so I felt it best to share something called “The Same Page Tool,” which was shown to me only a few months ago. Excellent, excellent medium and I highly recommend it. It helps you to clear away both stated and unstated expectations about which game you're actually playing, and I find it most useful for new groups (or new additions to your groups).
