While playing the game, we will each create a character, and together, we will strengthen reading, writing, research skills, strategic planning, math, teamwork, budgeting, and logical reasoning. Of course there will also be lots of history, geography, and learning about native cultures. Participants will need to make important decisions to ensure the survival of the group.
