Through the Ages: A New story of Civilization is the newest version of a civilisation building game from Vlaada Chvátil. This is a game in which you get to control a people from the time of antiquities, help them discover science, industry, culture and war as you guide them into the future.
More than a month has gone by since our last update that’s because it was exam time. Ronin loves 40K (as do I) but I had to start winding it down the closer we got to exams so that he could study and until last week we had stopped playing entirely. Here’s what’s happened since the last update.
About a week ago I was engrossed with a conversation on a local board game Whatsapp group. It was interesting we eventually hit 300 messages that day. It made me realise that I had not touched a board game in over a week! So, I found myself reflecting on what was going on and why.
I can’t find my laptop! Argh!! I missed last week’s post too. My apologies, expect a double post next week! I’ll go get my pointy hat and sit in the corner…
I’m a Scrum Master by profession. That means I’m a facilitator, someone who helps a team of people (developers) get a job done (develop software). Today I found myself using board games as a teaching tool in the office.
