Board games are much, much more than a timeless source of family fun, entertainment and play. They can also be powerful tools that parents, and children can use, together or on their own, to broaden their knowledge, further their understanding and advance their education. Which is why board games may be just the tonic for parents and children who are struggling with home schooling and social distancing.
Sharing time with family and friends around the gaming table offers enjoyable experiences that bring people together and create lifelong memories. Recognizing that games—especially tabletop games--also provide excellent opportunities for both emotional and cognitive learning, in 2018 Asmodee Group launched Asmodee Research, an initiative designed to promote the recognition of board games as a source of societal value.
