This month’s cheerful Sunday tea-time event (23rd June) came to us courtesy of game theory expert Sara Krenicky. Sara shared with us the mathematics behind games like Rock, Paper, Scissors – rules you can learn to give yourself a good game-playing advantage.
To get everyone in the mood a few choice titles were plucked from MadLab’s extensive library (OK, suitcase) of board and other table-top games, plus games brought along by attendees, including:
Gobblet – a two-player game in which larger pieces can “gobble” up smaller ones.
Ticket to Ride (Europe edition) – a railway-theme German-style board game.
A fabulous afternoon of games and maths was consumed along with typical Girl Geek baking (dinosaur gingerbread anyone?) and of course washed down with lots of tea.
