Tuesday 30th January, 12.30-16:30 FAB3.57

The use of games for teaching, learning and researching history is becoming of increasing interest to academic staff in the History Department. As part of this, we will be running an event on the boardgame "1960: The Making of the President", which simulates a crucial American presidential contest between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. We'll teach you the game and there will be a chance to play against other students, perhaps as part of a team. Pizza and drinks will be provided, and there will be experts on-hand to help everything run smoothly. No prior knowledge of games - or American history - is required.
The event will take place on Tuesday 30th January in FAB3.36 from 12.30 until 4.30. Come for as long as you want - or just drop by if you are curious.
