* Some historically based strategy board games can really help in history class. A couple examples are ''Here I Stand'' (wars of the Reformation), ''TabletopGame/TwilightStruggle'' (the Cold War) and ''World in Flames'' (WorldWarTwo).

* ''{{VideoGame/Minecraft}}'' is basically a treatise on the location and allocation of natural resources disguised as a video game. Learning how to use redstone is a good way to learn boolean algebra.

If you have enough time and patience, you can create a calculator or even a ''computer'' (if a basic one) out of blocks and redstone.

* Casual listeners of music don't really think about the fact that a song is not in the usual 4/4 meter until they have to do something that involves committing to keeping a rhythm, like playing an instrument...or playing {{Rhythm Game}}s. Long-time players of ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{beatmania}}'', for example, may remember "Holic" being their first real touch with time signatures that aren't in 4/4, 3/4, or triple time (the song runs in 7/8, then 7/4, before finally switching to 4/4), making the song a WakeUpCallBoss for a number of players of both games.
