In honor of the cabin fever that seems to sweep through the region this time of year, we'll be "Playing Games" this week. We'll hear about a game of chicken in Virginia, where politicos are the players. We'll look in to a board game a Maryland woman created to teach her kids about Africa. And we'll hit the basketball court, to learn about a program that connects players in D.C. with children in Guatemala.
