Students officially began game day 1 of the World Peace Game. Following a negotiations period, each country had a chance to make their declarations. Many maneuvers were made today as students did their best to solve problems and avoid other problems from occurring. The first negotiation period was very quiet and slow as students looked around the room, overwhelmed and unsure of how to go about their business. By the last negotiation period, there was a flurry of activity as many students began to get into the flow of the game. By the end of the day, two crises had been solved (only 21 to go!) and the confidence level of the group had begun to raise. We will play again next Tuesday and do what we can to save the world.
