Cry Havoc & teacher of the year

Geek&Sundry wrote an article about Daryl Durston, a physical education teacher in Ontario, California, who was named his school district’s P.E. Teacher of the Year. As it turns out, he lists Cry Havoc as one of his favorite board games. We are very happy to learn about that. This is a very inspiring story – click here to read it.

Of course, Mr. Durston played a lot more games with his students and his list of favorites includes also titles like Dominion and Raiders of the North Sea, both great games. We believe we make games for board games geeks, so it is important to us, that there are people, who introduce young students into our hobby – the more of us are there, the easier it is for us to find someone to play, the more great games will be published and, in general, the more, the merrier!

There are more and more stories like that, where board games are used for educational purposes. Can you share your own experience?


We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
