A Real "Hunger Game"

In much of the world, famine and drought are real.   Through a new board game, international student Jacob Mayiani, with JMU ecology professors, is trying to teach his fellow Maasai people in Kenya that their own cattle-grazing practices might contribute to the climate-conditions which cause so much suffering.    

Jacob's game is called Eramat (in Maasai, roughly, "mind your cows").  The intrepid grad student's game has been mentioned in "Anthropology News" and in The Breeze.
