It is a tough time to be online right now. We are watching as a whole race rises up against the systematic oppression they have experienced for years. It is hard not to be upset and the urge to help is strong. If you are in Australia you may feel like helping is too hard, the distance too great. Player 2 would like to remind you all though that Australia is by no means innocent. Indigenous Australians have been victimised and silenced by ingrained systemic racism and police brutality for generations. We, as a nation, have treated them in such a bad way for so long their voice is no longer even acknowledged let alone heard. So helping starts at home. Write to your local state or federal MP. Donate or assist a charity that works with the Aboriginal community. Educate yourself about the traditional owners of the land you are now sitting on. These are just some of the small but important steps each and every one of us needs to take to make Australia and, by extension, the world a better place. Player 2 would also like to say it is important to recognise all marginalised voices in this country, from the LGQBT+ community to disabled Australians to other minority ethnic and refugee groups, and work together to make this a truly equal place to live.
Player 2 Plays – Wildfire
Some people just want to watch the world burn. Sometimes that includes Ken, in a game like Wildfire. Newly launched after a successful Kickstarter, he has been eyeing this game for years. The chance to manipulate the elements to create chaos whilst stealthily sneaking past panicking guards is too good to pass up on. Watch Ken do his best impression of a thief/ninja/all-round super sneaky guy. Also watch him fail multiple times and setting himself on fire.
Stay tuned for more “Player 2 Plays” soon and if you have any suggestions for what the Player 2 crew should play, don’t be shy and let us know!

If you want to get your eyes on these videos before everyone else, you can become a Player 2 Crew Member at our Patreon Page!
Food, boardgames and videogames. Three things that’ll keep Ken fuelled on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter what flavour of each you put on the table, he’ll have them all.
