First Friday Lunch & Learn | Games I Play with my Father
February 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lunch & Learn with Humanities Kansas
First Friday each month at 12 noon
In partnership with Humanities Kansas, LCL will host, “Games I Play with my Father: Building Connections Through Board Games,” a presentation & discussion by Daniel Ireton. It’s part of Humanities Kansas’ Movement of Ideas Speakers Bureau, featuring presentations and workshops designed to share stories that inspire, spark conversation that inform, and generate insights that strengthen civic engagement.
Playing board games is entertaining, but the benefits of playing games extend beyond the realm of entertainment. Board games have the power to bring people together, foster cooperative and competitive play, increase brain function, and connect us with our past. This presentation focuses on how designer board games can connect players to history and how play brings communities together across varying backgrounds and generations. Attendees will learn about games that focus on rural life, promote critical thinking and communication, and build community.
