Gamertell has a feature about using tabletop games as a form of relaxation, specifically taking a break from studying for exams or finals.
The article is divided into three sections: The first suggests specific strategy (eg. Warhammer), card (eg. Magic: The Gathering) and board (eg. Risk, War on Terror) games, the second concentrates on pen-and-paper role-playing games and the third makes a few suggestions concerning time management.
