Boardgames and Education

There is considerable emerging evidence about the benefits of board games in improving social, math and literacy skills. Games can be used to support learning in the classroom or in the home.

Material on this site

We have several teachers on the Committee of Boardgames Australia and we are keen to foster the use of games in the class room. We will set up a forum for teachers and others with an interest in education in the near future. Until then we have an edited transcript of the presentation by Steve Carroll at the Games & Education Forum at the Australian Games Expo in Albury 2008.  We also have the audio file from the full session featuring Steve Carroll and Giles Pritchard to listen to here (55MB).

We also have lists of games useful for improving literacy or improving numeracy.

MOAB 2014
MOAB 2014

Saturday 4th to Monday 6th October 2014.

MOAB, short for Mother Of All Battles, is a three day gaming event held annually over the October long weekend at the Sylvania Heights Community and Youth Club, which is located in the Sutherland Shire, 25km south of Sydney, Australia. Entry into the convention is free, and we offer a range of games and activities including a new Board Game Library, competition wargames, free participation and demo games, trade stalls, and our popular Bring & Buy which was a feature at last years CanCon.

This year we are dedicating the Monday to board games and card games, including free game mastered sessions of Zombicide and Castle Ravenloft, and a Magic the Gathering Khans of Tarkir draft.

Presented by The Southern Battle Gamers.
