Tasks / Paleodiet

The diet of the hunter-gatherer differs from that of the typical SF0 player not only in composition, but also in the degree to which it is predictable. Explore the subjective effects of a scarce and unreliable food supply on the modern, western human by modifying your own food selection mechanism to include elements with random or uncertain outcomes; to wit, play a game to decide what and how much you eat.

I kind of want to modify a game like Settlers of Catan or Agricola for use with this task. Probably won't be doing it myself, though, as most of my attempts to modify my food intake end in disaster.

I refuse to accept credit for this poor of a completion, but am still posting it, as a comment in case people are interested:

After a geohashing expedition, I decided to have a random meal. The restaurant was picked by my colleagues in the expedition, but was not random. For choosing my meal, the menu was only in German, a language I neither speak nor read. However, some of the items are easy to know what they are, including the gyros which I actually had. My method of choosing: I asked one of the people with me (relet as it turned out) for a number between 1 and 100. This was to decide who got to pick the item I would eat. As it turned out, relet ended up picking a number which sent the food choosing to him! However, the choice was now a number between 1 and 1000. He picked the number, and thus had me ordering the gyros:
