Hi, there!

I just finished "The Talent Code", a book on how to become an expert on practically everything.

The two most interesting elements that I found was the concept of deep practice and procedure coaching. In deep practice one pays a lot of attention while practicing, trying to fully understand what is going on.

With procedural coaching, there are really no praises or motivational speak, just short instructions on how to improve a specific move.

So I thought that it would be interesting is we could spend a month working on these these concepts on a game like risk to try the concepts.

The idea is simple: we discuss basic tactics, practice them, and we have instructional games where everyone plays discussing what their thinking is over the chat.

This way other players can comment and make quick procedural comments if it is a good idea or a bad one.

The goal will be to see if we can improve our game as a group. So part of the project will be to figure out how to measure improvement.

This should result on having better quality games for everyone involved.

So let me know what you think about this. We can also figure out how we can create practices for different concepts.

Shameless bump :)

Who would be willing to play a learning game? This means that as we play, we are describing in the comments our thinking, so that other people can learn from what we are doing and comment if they believe that you made a mistake.

Oh, you can put the time in: it only takes a few minutes to play a turn.

go to http://www.conquerclub.com/ and get a free account, and post here your user name. Once we have a few more players, I will send you an invite to the game. :)

Okay, so first comes a brief explanation of what deep practice is:

1. You slow down your play and try to think through what you are doing. And you try to learn things a little bit at a time.

2. You practice those bits a lot.

3. You practice until you can >>feel<< when an error is being made.


Okay, now the first strategic aim at the beginning of playing risk is to try to conquer a full continent first.

Quickly, Here are the rules:
Each turn consists in building up armies, attack, and the reinforcement. On build up, you place new armies in your current territories. When attacking, you use 2 or 3 armies to attack another one who will defend with two or 1 dice. if your roll is higher than the defender you have destroyed that army. If your roll is the same or less, you have lost that army. At the end you can move around your armies to better use them. :)


So remember, try to get a hold of a continent.
