The Tut Game, my classroom LARP based on the powerful people of the court of King Tutankhamun, has begun, and my students are taking great pleasure in exploring power and politics in the ancient world. It's a game of conversation, resource trading and construction, and building alliances and eliminating opponents. Several characters have suffered near poisonings and attacks by assassins, the regent has his hands full, and the web grows every more complex. It's fostering all kinds of discussions and explorations of Egyptian history and culture. I'll provide the occasional update in this blog.
In the last few weeks I've also come across several other interesting links. I would be interested to hear what you think.
