Watch This Space

I have what I think is a kick-ass post in the wings. I should get it out in a few days, but tomorrow is Games Day in Jerusalem, so you'll just have to wait for it. Maybe Tuesday, maybe Wednesday.

In the meantime, here's:

A $400 board game called "Keep the Customer":
This unique board game is a fun, effective way to learn how to deal with challenging situations, before they happen. Using a series of customer service and role-playing scenarios, employees learn ways to handle a variety of different customer service situations, from basic questions to complicated emotional issues.
Oh my God. It sounds like the AOL Game of Nightmares. They have two versions: Call Center Edition and Health Care Edition, and they also sell bonus packs of cards for $17 each.

This article is about a scandal that a Welch national assembly minister spent £3,500 to print up some Christmas cards, which included his picture next to a Welch version of the game Scrabble. I think the scandal is the £2,000 that Mattel charged him to allow him to use a photographed image of the game on his Christmas cards.

And here's yet another set of games made out of chocolate. Monopoly is coming soon.
