The Vassals don their flash suits and enter the Battle Room to discuss Ender’s Game, the first novel in Orson Scott Card’s popular science fiction series. Michael (Lord Prism), Greg (Claudius the Fool), and Zach (Alias) delve into why they enjoy this story so much and the various philosophical questions that it evokes. Topics include whether or not the story can be described as a “children’s book”, the futuristic world of Ender’s Game, bullying, the true meaning of the book’s title, and much more.
