Abstract:

It's getting close to the holidays! This is a very informal session of playing a game of propositional logic (co-authored by Polina). She (and others) have taken the predecessor of this game to groups of 1st grade schoolchildren and Mensans, from the US to Russia and Rwanda, in solitude and in tournaments. Come play and we'll see where it takes us!.
