A flurry of interest has arisen around the potential of digital games, simulations and interactives to promote humanities learning. Foundations and universities have invested millions of dollars into developing these games, yet many are built, tested, and promptly shelved, played by only a handful of students during the pilot testing phase. There is no comprehensive directory to connect teachers with these resources. If high quality educational games are to reach teachers and their students, there is a clear need to build a collaborative directory for sharing information. PlayingHistory.org is on track to be exactly this sort of directory, but we can use your help ensure it's success. I will give a walk-through of the site wireframes and functionality, and participants can try out the 30 game sample set. This session will expose AAHC members to a variety of historical games and lay a foundation for members involvement in both using the site as a resource for their own classes and as historian game reviewers.
