I received a lovely message from Oscar, a school teacher in Spain, who has been using board games and roleplaying games as learning tools in the classroom.
 
Last year Oscar adapted Horror on the Orient Express to be used in his 6th grade class and it was played over three school terms. It was designed to help teach English and how history is important for an understanding of the present.
 
Oscar has posted blog entries about the project (in Spanish), which you can see via:

[if you don't read Spanish, Google Chrome's translation feature will give you an idea of how it went.]
 

The truth is they were attracted to the idea after seeing the trailer for The Express Diaries and especially when I told them that there was a statue with sinister powers, that there was murder and many other things...

Love it! These kids will end up with an amazing (or should I say effulgent) vocabulary in English, especially if they ever need to describe things that are eldritch, tenebrous or loathsome...

This was amazing. What a challenge! I loved the picture of them all in costume.

Hippocephalic. I use that one all the time. Squamous.
