I just watched this episode, and I was thinking about how knowledge games are described as games in which players bring to the table real-world knowledge they already have. There's certainly some value in that, but what about games that teach real-world knowledge instead of testing it? I am thinking of games like 1960: The Making of the President, in which the cards the players can use to influence the outcome of the election are tied into real events that happened at that time. A lot of historical and wargames are like this--they are naturally strategy games, but I'm also tempted to call them knowledge games because they impart knowledge, but they aren't under the definition used here. However, they are certainly "educational" and may be considered in a library program for some of the same reasons. Well, many of them are too long, of course, but I do think they should fit in this rubric somewhere.
