Designing a game with spesific goals


To design a game with specific goals

[lo 4.4]

Here is a variation on an old children’s game that can be played on the playground, or even in a hall.

The outlines can be drawn with chalk. Two of the same “patterns” can be drawn, so that two people or two teams can play simultaneously.

Here is the key:

L = left foot

R = right foot

X = Do not tread in this box

L/R = Land with both feet at the same time.

There are 12 “spaces” (rectangles and circles) altogether.

Player 1 (of both teams) starts when the sign is given. When the last space has been reached without any fault having been made, the player runs back to his / her team and the next player starts as soon as player number 1 has joined the back of the row.

If a player makes any mistake, he / she must start from the beginning again.

You might think that this game could be made more interesting by making the goals which are aimed at, more challenging. Redesign the game and add what you think is necessary to make it more interesting. Remember that you must be able to demonstrate in practice that it is “playable”.

If you don’t like this game at all, you may design any other game. The most important feature is that there must be interesting / challenging goals, and you must be able to demonstrate how the game is played.

The more people there are who are interested in playing the game, the higher your mark will be.
