I just spent 8-9 hours playing a board game. No dice, just a set of rules, strategies and determined opponents (and maybe a glass of vino). I know you can play these games on line but it is so much more enjoyable in person. I wonder if many of my students (or most adults) would have the patience to learn and play this sort of game – where imagination and thinking dominates over short term satisfaction and trigger finger dexterity.
He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.John Cotton Dana (1856–1929)
