So there I was, calmly watching students predictably fail a mock GCSE when BAM, I get inboxed from the IT teacher down the hall whose probably doing the same with this!

I think I would genuinely like to try this some time. It very much feels like a sixth form game, but I'm not sure. I would love to see it work with a year 7 class as well. Hmmmmm, the thoughts. I've often thought that games, particularly complex ones, are a potentially great teaching tool. The designing of a game like Magic: The Gathering is an engulfing process with a number of cross-curricular applications. Next term perhaps I'll get my students to design a playable game that can be used in the classroom with real-world applications.
