CBS Board Game Newsmagazine Feature

CBS’s Sunday Morning newsmagazine recently ran a feature on “board games through the ages,” including clips of reporter Mo Rocca exploring gaming at Gen Con Indy and interviewing game scholar Scott Nicholson.

The piece touches on a number of board game issues, including competition with digital games, historical games, the recent board game resurgence, and the benefit of face-to-face play in teaching kids (and adults) about winning and losing graciously.

Thanks to CBS news for producing this positive feature about hobby games and highlighting a pastime that not only draws people away from their addictive electronic devices, but brings them together for a community play experience.
