Gaming has always been a very prevalent part of our society. There is a long history of using various board games as methods of covert communication, from what we could call “differential” communication (i.e. the movement of pieces constitutes the “language”) to the idea of “game state” communication (where the current state of all the manipulatable objects in the game world represents a message). For many years we have seen covert channels in games like chess, checkers and other simple board games and even evolution to more “complex” computer games like magnetron. Enter the 21st century and the advent of the high performance personal computer.
