From the multiple award-winning team comes the latest educational game, Playing History. In this episode of 'The Plague', you go back in time to the 14th century in Florence. This amazing city full of wonder and bizarre characters is stricken by a mysterious disease that medics are just beginning to understand. Your mother has been affected by it too, and it is up to you to help her survive! Explore the city, talk to the people in the city and find out how to prevent your mother from getting worse. All the while, you must be careful not to catch it yourself. Learn about history first hand and relive the past!

Join the 500+ schools across Europe using Playing History since it first came out on the web in the Fall of 2010. We now make it even easier to access and play wherever you go!
