Last year, at the high school where I teach, I started a Board Game Club. Even though there are posters all over the school, I frequently hear "we have a board game club?"

Of course, most people assume that we play Monopoly every day... but I'm trying to change that assumption while building interest in the club.

Anyway, I just wanted to share the article that we finally got in our humble school paper... It's hardly Woodward and Bernstein, but at least we're in!



I know the image is grainy.. but try to guess what game we're playing.

Definitely. I'm a little sad how readily I recognized it...

Yeah, I got a chuckle out of that, too. What exactly are board game skills?

I guess they would include shuffling small cards and punching out chits without ripping them.

We don't.. that was from a rare extended meeting. It was worth it. That was one of the most tense games of BSG I've ever played. I was the president, and I looked at one of the admiral's loyalty cards (post-sleeper phase). It said "not a cylon". I trusted the admiral thereafter. I shouldn't have.. great game.

Oh sure.. it's out of the bag. AnakinOU got it right. Anyway, since I log all my plays (as my microbadge says), a person could really just look up what I've played at BHS in the last few meetings. No big mystery. Still, being able to figure out the game in that grainy image is impressive.
