Pupils at Wycombe Abbey School in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, play Western & Eastern Front Battle Games, their History Teacher Mr N George said,
“We love how quick the game is to set up – you can jump into it in a matter of minutes. The best thing about it is how thematic it is – everything from the names and artwork on the attack cards to the descriptions on the event cards gives you a really good feel for the period.
The event cards are one of our favourite bits, and they teach an important lesson, which is that you can’t plan for every eventuality – sometimes you have no choice but to use the hand you’ve got as best you can. This is much the same situation as the WW1 commanders faced, so do they deserve the blame they often get?
I think from the perspective of a History teacher these games are useful in that they get the kids asking questions and give them a feel for the period. So, thank you once again!”
If you think your school or youth group could use Western Front as a fun educational tool, please get in touch.”
