He noted how there tends to be a misconception with board games, as people don’t give them the level of credit they deserve in its educational value.
“Board games today… are miles and miles more deep and complex and interesting and honesty fun than a game of yesteryear,” Goldberg says. “[Playing board games] will be an incredibly enriching, educational experience that’s fun, that doesn’t involve a videogame, that involves talking to other people, socializing, [and] understanding and functioning in a social setting, which I think a lot of kids have trouble with because their face is in their phone all day and they don’t have to talk to anybody… I think this program can be a terrific thing for your kid for something that is both educational and fun and they will look forward to.”
