My goal with these videos is to bring awareness to a function of board games not really thought of or forgotten - them being a learning tool. Games require the player to practice any number of skills. Be it simple math practice while keeping score, reading and vocabulary from text on the components, development of social skills, help with logic reasoning, history from the theme or rules, and lots more. Then there's the learning games can inspire that happens outside the game itself. Maybe a game created a passion in your child to learn more about the Roman Empire or spurred them to use their imagination to create their own games and worlds. The possibilities are numerous. We will try to delve into them game by game. Enjoy!

Great game to "explore" the history of exploration, exploitation, and colonization.

Silly game that has lead to my kids reading and re-reading the rules many times.

Awesome historical theme, but does it have what it takes to keep my kids interested?

Learn Using Board Games: Valley of the Kings

A deck-building game with a few new twists combined with math, reading, and ancient history. But is it any good?
