Argz: a reasoning puzzle game for law students
David Johnson of New York Law School pointed me to Argz, a platform currently in development (and with Beta Release) to create a puzzle-game out of logic & critical thinking exercises. It’s intended to be used inside that law school’s classes. The site’s description of the Argz platform:
Everyone knows how to argue — or do they?
Argz is a new kind of puzzle to test and increase your reasoning skills. Unlike other puzzles that are based on numbers, or pictures, or individual words, Argz is a puzzle of ideas:
Separate facts from arguments
Understand the flow from evidence to conclusions
Figure out where a piece of evidence fits in a complex argument structures
Test your knowledge of current events
Challenge yourself to recreate policy debates
The tool has Beta releases for users to author their own puzzles. They can create logic flows using a Diagramming tool (think Xmind or Visio) and make it into a game for others to play.
