Why is it called Ego Cognito?

The story behind Ego Cognito is an interesting one. It is a Latin inspired name that stands for "I reveal". Ego means "I" and Cognito means "Reveal". Cognito is the opposite of the more popular word "Incognito", which means to "Hide".
In English however, Ego is referring to the "Self/Identity" and the word Cognito is a play on the word "Cognition", roughly translating to "To think upon one's self or identity." This is commonly referred to as a double entendre and these meanings really reflect with what the game is all about!

What do the Merits mean and how do they work

It's simple. The questions scale in value from 1 merit, being the lowest in value, to 3 merits being the highest in value.

1 Merit = Easy to answer and surface level questions.
2 Merits = Regarding your perspective about the world around you.
3 Merits = Regarding something more personal about yourself.

These merits are totaled for each person at the end of the game and decide who will lead our signature "Icepick" Round!
