Making a game of Ancient history

Students in Dr. Glenn Kumhera’s 406W Research in Medieval Sources class used the research work they completed this semester to create a board game, titled Gesta miserororum or “Deeds of the Ill-fated,” to teach players about eleventh-century Europe.

They unveiled the game last night and invited faculty members, friends, and administrators to Reed 114 to play a game or two.

The students not only produced the board and developed the game concept, but they created more than 600 individual cards, too.

Who knew learning about ancient history could be so much fun?

Oh, right, we did!
