You can do anything…on a DS!

The question it poses at the end ‘What would you write?’ is an odd one. It’s not like whether you can win is the conflict, but how you’d win.

If you haven’t had a look at the video, you need to grab a star and this game has a large dictionary in it. You can type in a word and it’ll make that object appear – like a ladder, if you just need to climb to get the star. But as the video shows, you could also write ‘beaver’ and it chews down the tree the star is in. Again, it seems like how you do it is more important than whether you can manage it.

I wonder if it’ll be helpful in illustrating different needs people bring with them when it comes to the activity called roleplay?
