Zeitgeist! The Official Playing Guide

It is inappropriate/inaccurate to call Zeitgeist! contestants players. This isn't to suggest Zeitgeist! isn't fun—there is without question a significant fun factor—but rather to emphasize the fact that tension/conflict is baked into the game on multiple levels. contestants compete against one another in the multi-player version of the game; and in the team version, contestants compete both intra-team and inter-team. Of course, in all versions of the game, contestants compete against themselves in a sense and, in another sense, against Zeitgeist! itself.
