Would it maybe make sense to invent a role in this case that doesn't necessarily exist in real life? e.g. GameOfficiant or GameMaster. I suppose there could actually be such a person in real life if you wanted someone to keep an eye on both players and make sure they're playing by the rules, haha. I think that in some games (just speaking generally here and not about DCI in particular), that role has been referred to as just "the computer".
I'm not so sure about the RestartButton role; it seems that the
only role-specific behavior it has is announcing the game start,
which could be done by just calling the announceGameStart method
of the InfoSpace role that you already have.
You mentioned that player1 and player2 are roles, but I don't see them as roles in the code...?

So my question would be: should a Role always come with methods attached to it, or can a role be also a contextualization of the object in the particular context it is used on?
