Hi Crystal, your idea of taking it offline is very appealing. In my case, I feel that we if the game can help bring the social aspects of the game from the virtual to the real world.
I see opportunities for more Groupon style deals for activities and services that might serve as focal points for meeting up and developing support structures that are more meaningful. On the flip side non-commercial type group activities can also be proposed/suggested if there are enough people using similar ideas/ingredients in their sandwich.
Since this game might operate on a city level, this idea has even more meaning and success of being implemented.
Perhaps Lynn can weigh in on her experience. As a person in this demographic would such an experience be meaningful?
Great update to the concept Lynn! This is really shaping up to a more meaty solution, no pun intended. Given my background as a mechanical engineering undergrad, I think we'd better leave it to the game designers :) . However I'll do my best to further help critique and add to the concepts. Thanks for the add!
