“I was tasked to run a board game session for one hour in a school event. There were six players from first grade to fourth grade and I had no idea how much they have played before.
What kind of games would you make them play? Would you try cramming lots of games into one hour or one longer game? How much help should you give to those kids playing against each other?”
