(Re)telling chess stories as game content

Eric Buckthal, Foaad Khosmood
2014 International Conference on Foundations of Digital Games  
In this paper, we use chess games as drama-producing events to generate traditional stories in multiple genres that contain no chess-specific content.  ...  We consider chess games as activities capable of being dramatic and entertaining in their own domain. Chess can inspire the same kind of audience reaction as novels, plays, and films.  ...  The NPC then proceeds to tell a story describing the battle. How would the narrative content required for this conversation be created?  ...

Esther Ofenste Phetlhu
2014 South African Journal of Childhood Education  
We seek to redress this bias by researching a traditional black South African Pedi children's game Masekitlana.  ...  However, 'the long childhood' of Masekitlana suggests that the stages theory of Piaget, as well as Vygotskyian ideas that have come down to us via Cole & Scribner and Valsiner, require revision in  ...  Mapelo writes, based on her memory of her own childhood play, as follows: Masekitlana is a story-telling game in which the narrator uses stones as characters to enact a story, which often includes a complex  ...
