It appears that board games may be the answer to world peace, at least world peace in the school cafeteria. That’s according to a feel good article by Lindsey Christ on ny1, a New York City elevision station.
Here is how Christ puts it: “Seven schools across the city are experimenting with ways to improve the middle school cafeteria—a setting infamous for cliques, bullying and boredom.” I can remember my middle school cafeterias as a place where hamburgers were grey and lunch was taken with a glass of angst.
It appears that the test appears to be proving that board games may be a great way to make lunch a more pleasant experience. Indeed, it seems possible that a game like "Trouble" can keep you out of trouble. According to the article, the kids check out games like "Uno", "Connect 4" and a big favorite, Chess on their way to the lunchroom.
