This course is one of my most favorite classes at Middlebury. We basically play board games at every class and wrote some game reviews using some mathematical concepts. Taught me many interesting board games and I'm glad it can fulfill the CW distribution.

Super fun, just played board games every class and wrote a few essays about them. Learned how to play a bunch of games and looked at some of the math and statistics within them. Alex is awesome definitely take this class if you possible

This is an absolute gem of a class. The application of math concepts to board games is such a cool way to learn. Alex is really passionate about the course material and it shows in his teaching. Got exposure to a ton of new games and think about them in a new way. Would highly, highly recommend.
