This talk by professor William Tsutsui of the University of Kansas spotlights Asian games, sports and puzzles either not known or commonly misunderstood in the West. For instance: Unlike Uno and Yahtzee, it is not actually necessary to shout out "Mahjong!" in order to win a game of Mahjong. Weird, right?
If you enjoy games and Asian cultures, this talk may be a really good fit. If you only like one or the other, you'll probably enjoy at least half of the presentation.
