With the game Among Us going viral these days, photographer Jessica Kobeissi decided to set up her own kind of secret identity game with social deduction: he invited 6 photographers and 1 imposter to have an online chat to see if the photographers could identify the faker.
You can watch how the game unfolded in the 31-minute video above.
“I thought it would be a fun spin to do it with a bunch of photographers and one impostor — who is pretending to be a photographer!” Kobeissi tells PetaPixel. “Their job is to guess who is not the real photographer. It’s like a giant game of Find the Mole.”
The players in Kobeissi’s game were put in an online chat with fake names and were asked to discuss their answers to a series of questions. For example, Round One had the players answer “How long have you been doing photography?” with one important rule: there would be no “technical talk.”
At the end of each round, the players were asked to cast a vote for who they believed the imposter was, and whoever had the most votes was kicked out of the game.
The imposter isn’t revealed until after the 28-minute mark at the conclusion of the game, so you can test your deduction skills and see if you can correctly identify the person yourself.
