There is often resistance to game playing. From the muttering of cynical comments about games being for kids to loud proclamations that it is wasting valuable time that could be spent in front of a computer. But it turns out play is good for the brain!

Not only can it be a more entertaining way of learning new concepts. But it also fires up larger parts of the brain than traditional learning/meetings. Moreover, it produces chemicals that can aid psychological safety in the team.. and simply make you feel good!
