    My friends, I have been playing board games with my geeky friends for the past 2 years and it has opened up a whole new dimension in my life. These are real, physical games with real people.

    Kansas-It all started as a school project for a class of 7th graders at Andover Middle School. The topic: the effects of racism and oppression in 1930s America.

But one student's work is catching the attention of more than just his teachers and classmates. Wichita's NAACP is now looking into a complaint filed by another student's mother, who took offense to one project in particular. The complaint stems from...

    (Kansas) December 27, 2005 - A Kansas woman has taken an idea from a popular kid's game and turned into "a god idea." Jeanne Dray is the maker of "The Kingdom Seekers" board game.
