Hi all...again

I'm currently working in a secondary school and sixth form, and it occurred to me the other day that we could use Evolution (the game) to help teach and understand Evolution (the Theory of).

The biology department have given it a provisional thumbs up...they don't know my "true" intention of wanting to play games at work...I won't tell if you don't!

Is it possible to buy a PnP version of the game? Will want to trial it before getting a final yes, and I'd rather not use my personal copy.

Thanks!

North Star Games designs party games that don't suck! Play them with your non-gamer friends over the holidays.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

Christopher Harris is working on a textbook that uses board games to help in the classroom. I think Evolution is one of 5 games being used in the lesson plans.

The last book he coauthored with Brian Mayer (Freedom: The Underground Railroad).

They have both been instrumental in helping to organize the International Games Day through their involvement at the American Library Association.

I'm not sure if any of this is interesting to you, but I thought I'd share just in case.

Cheers!
Dom
