By emphasizing small kindnesses over military triumph, the cooperative card game reminds us of our duty to share the love of Christ.
I don't know that I could "play" this game without tears---but still it is intriguing to consider as a role-play complement to teaching history, especially in the wake of Peter Jackson's "They Shall Not Grow Old."
