9/10/19 ASHLAND, Ohio - AU Professor of History Dr. John Moser was featured in an article written by Richland Source City Editor Carl Hunnell and posted on the Richland/Ashland Source websites. The article talks about how Dr. Moser uses role-playing games found in the Reacting to the Past series to help students experience first-hand significant moments in world history. The article noted that the games take the teaching of history far from the days of dry lectures and required rote memorization of facts and dates.
Several weeks ago, Dr. Moser attended Gen Con in Indianapolis. Gen Con is the largest tabletop-game convention in North America by both attendance and number of events. It features traditional pen and paper, board and card games, including role-playing games, miniature war games, live action role-playing games, collectible card games, and strategy games. This was the first year that a "Reacting to the Past" game, which is a game that Dr. Moser designed based on the July Crisis of 1914, was offered as an event for those attending the convention.
