Sherman College Students Create Chiropractic Board Game
Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic students Michael Burcon and Pauline O'Dell have created a board game that tests the knowledge of players with questions that are similar to those of the chiropractic national boards. The game, christened The Board, was designed to prepare undergraduate students for chiropractic college, and for students already in chiropractic programs, to review for their boards.
The game has a wooden board with miniature models of human vertebrae as game pieces; different academic subjects are represented by different colored board spaces. Turns are referred to as "terms," and the player who first "enters practice" wins.
The Board is a game for two to four players, taking one to two hours to play, and is being sold in most chiropractic college bookstores. One half of the royalties from the sale of the game will be donated to Sherman College. Future editions, covering other allied health professions, will be available in 1997.
