These are TED and TEDx talks about boardgaming that I and others enjoyed watching. They range from basic questions ("what is fun?") to serious ones (how can a board game be used to teach world peace?).

Of these talks, the last one, the World Peace Game, is my favorite, because it illustrates the power that a board game can have in the hands of fourth graders to teach creative solutions to global issues.
