This board game has been designed with the virtual class in mind.
If you click on the Data tab and leave the area under Enter your questions here/Enter your answers here blank, it will auto-generate questions and answers for you.
Now go to the Boardgame tab, your questions will be displayed one at time in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Click on the Answer button to display the correct answer.
Do you have specific questions you would like to use? Go back to the Data tab and type/copy paste your questions and answers in the spaces under Enter your questions here/Enter your answers here. You can enter a maximum of 20 questions and answers which will be displayed randomly on the Boardgame tab. If you leave any of the cells empty on the Data tab, the auto-generator will keep working, generating question alongside your own questions and answers.
The game can have up to 10 players. Write their names in the spaces under the dice. Note that each player’s counter will contain the first letter of their name. Also, the colour of each counter will be the same as the background where their name is written. Click on and delete any extra counters before starting the game.
A player’s turn is indicated when their name is written in red font. This changes to the next person when the Roll the Dice! button is pressed.
To play the game, start by sharing your screen in your virtual classroom. If you are teaching face-to-face, project the board game on your whiteboard.
To start the game, press the Roll the Dice! button and move each player’s counter accordingly.
Each player moves incrementally around the board. If a player lands on a ? square, they should answer the question in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Click on the Answer button to reveal the correct answer to the question. If you press the Roll the Dice! button again, the question will change and the answer automatically hides from view.
Each square is programmed to change after each turn. The majority of squares will display ?, prompting the player to answer the question which is displayed in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. However, there is the possibility that each square could display these commands: Roll again, Go back 1 space, Go back 2 spaces, Go back 3 spaces, Go back 4 spaces, Go back 5 spaces, Go forward 1 space, Go forward 2 spaces, Miss a turn, Start again, and Relax. When a player lands on a square with a command, they should act accordingly.
The aim of the game is for players to move from Start to Finish. The first player to reach the Finish square is declared the winner.
