To be short, the goal for Strategy Games was to strengthen the mind and promote it as one’s greatest asset. While there were many physical activities that were done over the week (i.e. Ultimate Frisbee, Building, Rock Climbing, and Self Defense class at the local Dojo), which require physical skill, it was the “thinking things through” for which we focused. As it is often paradigmatic in our culture that only the biggest and strongest survive, finish first, win, or whatever, we strongly disagree. Contrarily, it is the ability to grow in thinking well, and quickly, through any given scenario which will ultimately bring about accomplishment and success. However, this does not mean that we spent the week trying to convince the students that, if they were thinking well enough, they would eventually be able to line up across from a three hundred pound lineman in the NFL and secure retirement for their mom and dad. Nevertheless, our goal was to place the students in varying situations where they not only had to work together (teamwork), but, more importantly, think hard about what it was that they were doing.
