Episode 99 – Free Beer Tomorrow


We celebrate episode 99 with three co-hosts talking about some really cool serious games. An episode so good it is SCAREY!!! Our games cover the gambit of history, geometry, leadership, and DNA. We begin with a game targeting high school students and let them understand what it was like to be a Czech citizen during some very turbulent times. The art style is very film noir. We spend some time on Chocolate Covered Broccoli, and commit a few Word Crimes. We also go back to the idea of, is it right to secretly teach things? Does it have to be a hidden when you teach kids things? Can you teach fluid dynamics with games?

While not quite a review episode, Phaedra takes us through a series of shot outs to a crop of cool, serious, games which are coming down the pipe!

As we come up on Episode 100 next, we want your feedback and ideas, hints, tips, and thoughts!!
