Knowing how you won a game is more important than the winning.

Knowing why you lost a game can be more important than the winning.

The regular  thoughtful use of strategy games provides interest-filled and meaningful opportunities for children to think through problems. The processes used in analysing strategy games and developing winning strategies are similar to those used in other areas of problem solving.  Tacticals provides  situations for two players and for solo players. While children often use 'have-a-go', 'hit-n-miss', trial and error, they should be encouraged to work out why they won or lost a game.
