Collaborations with other authors - Faidutti at the center of the game world

Faidutti has collaborated with many different game designers. In 2006, American game critic Shannon Applecline took this as an opportunity to investigate. Following the mind games "Erdős number" and "Bacon number" she made some calculations.

In these evaluations, a value is assigned to a person by counting the number of collaborations with different people. The two numbers thus tell how far a person is from collaborating directly on a scientific article with mathematician Paul Erdős or a film with Kevin Bacon.
