Things I Know 350 of 365: This is a brilliant waste of time

Last week, a former student posted a link to this game to Facebook with an apology for the time suck she had just unleashed on the life of anyone who clicked through. (I echo that same apology here.)

I’ve kept the window open the entire time.

I’ve played the game while participating in entire conversations with my family of which I have little-to-no memory once I realize what’s happened.

Today, I ventured off the game page, up a level to the list of games written by the game’s architect William Hoza.

I have two questions:

  1. Where did he learn how to do this?
  2. Would giving students a choice between this work and whatever course their school schedules after Algebra I be a totally uncalled for idea?
