Looking for a game to play with family or friends over Thanksgiving? Or maybe a holiday gift? Check out Trial by Trolley, a board game based on the classic runaway-trolley thought experiment associated with utilitarianism. The game requires at least three players: a "conductor" and two individuals or teams competing to convince the conductor to run over whatever is on their opponent's track and spare whatever is on their own track. It's sort of like the Apples to Apples of moral philosophy. The game is about $25 at Target, Amazon, and other retailers. www.target.com/p/trial-by-trolley-game/-/A-78138830
