Never get enough of board games

board_games_never_enough

As I was googling rules for word games for fast finishers, I found (or rather, remembered) this great blog by TEFLgamer. It focuses on ready-made board games rather than printables (see Big benefits of board games for that) and is a fantastic resource with advice about the best board games for our purposes, methodology and even extra handouts with functional language. I like the rationale the author gives for using board games: they are fun, authentic, cognitively engaging, restrictive in a good way, etc, etc. I can only add that games that save the teacher’s prep time are twice as valuable – and I really hope the blog will come back to life some day!

Now, where’s that new Dixit set I bought a few weeks ago? 🙂
