Role playing in the ER

The Hartford Courant brings us a story of play in the ER…to learn of course.

Basically a group of employees play a board game that simulates a very stressful 24 hours in the ER. The employees work together in order to navigate a host of issues. The purpose is to promote efficient decision making, collaboration, and learning.

I think it’s a great idea. And I think we’ll see more of it. However, can’t someone come up with a role playing game on the Wii (at the least on the computer)? Board games are so passé (except for Candy Land).
