Meeting Topic: Agile Games!
Meeting Learning: A lot of research and information is available about how we learn as adults.  It's probably not surprising that as we age, the patterns and ways in which we take in and retain new information as adults is very different than how we did it as kids.  What may be surprising is the fact that combining the learning with game play is even more effective for adults than kids.  It could be that we just don't play enough games as adults, or it could be that by learning via game play we can establish and\or bypass neural pathways in our adult minds that make the activity more effective.  Either way, this month is about playing games.
Description: This session will be a joint Agile KC and KC Agile Gaming Meet Up. 
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own game ideas this month. The group will vote to prioritize which games will be played. However, if you have a tough problem to solve at work, feel free to post a question here (or direct message us) and we will see if we can bring a game to address that need!
Speaker Bio: Agile Game Night's mission is to provide a safe place to learn about new tools to solve problems in knowledge work, and/or ways to teach agile and lean concepts.
