I didn’t have time to watch the video but did read the text. I’m a big fan of cooperative games as a classroom model. In fact, Pandemic was the model for my semi-successful Historic Zombie class theme 1st Semester. That feels so long ago and strangely prescient. Here is what I found to be the most important quote:

“When you look at a lot of what’s talked about and the political situation around the world, people are throwing a lot of blame,” Leacock said. “When really what we need to be doing is coming together and figuring out how we can work on this big problem together.”
