Two members of the Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers (HAWKs), Sam Fuson and Ed Duffy, used wargaming to help local Alzheimer's patients. See the full story here: link

Quite superb – well done to all concerned.

Interesting. At the nursing home where I do most of my gaming those with full Alzheimers do not play but those of use with lesser problems do. I know that ‘Nuts' gave Shuggie a good bit of pleasure and helped keep his mind together in his last few years. Perhaps we should involve those further gone.

Pencil me in for the 2028 game, just in case. Horse and musket, if you would--bright colors and all that.

Great to see. Anything that gets the neurons firing is good.

Wonderful! Loved the part with the veteran bombardier asking for his air support! thumbs up

I loved that one of them was once a bombardier on a B24 and "wanted to know where the planes were to support his attack". : )
