I firmly believe that I learned more about building businesses from playing Starcraft than I've learned from business books — Tobi Lütke (@tobi) April 1, 2018 Some might dismiss Tobi Lütke’s tweet’s praise of a video game contributing to his success. Our culture - parents specifically - struggle to see video games as anything other than just ‘time wasters’ while other strategy games like chess are seen as positive to a child’s development. Don’t get me wrong, there will always be consequences for kids (or adults!) that play video games for 8 hours every day. But wouldn’t you see the same effects with someone who plays chess for 8 hours at a time?
