In what apparently originated in my city, John Hunter has developed an incredible role playing game experience he calls The World Peace Game, for his 10 year old gifted students.

The video below will no doubt give the best description of his game, so I won’t try to tell it better than the man himself:

About Nick Nundahl

I'm a wild haired demi-viking living on the East Coast United States. I've run games in countless systems and tanked more game nights than I've ever run successfully, but hopefully I learned a lot in the process and I'd like to pass that on. Follow me on Twitter.

  2. You have got to admit, this is pretty brilliant.
    To incorporate roleplaying and strategy games with education (namely economics, diplomacy, foreign relations, history, cultural anthropology, environmental issues) is absolutely fantastic!
    Making learning fun, and now with minis!

    And its not like these subjects are “new” to roleplaying anyways! Heck even we at Torn World have political and environmental issues in NUMEROUS campaigns of ours, and the players always love getting involved! He’s just taking that same concept and making it real-life!

  3. Real life and educational, I do think it is brilliant. I’m hoping to feature more of his stuff on the blog in the future if I can. I love it, thanks for commenting TornWorld-Jack.
