In my classes, I use this style of game to review for tests, to fill those slow times, and to find ways to reward the class and get them to work together.

Some variants I use to spice up the games and keep it fresh and exciting:

• All the students vs. the teacher. They have to get enough points as a team to win whatever prize (free time, no homework, etc.) BUT they lose 50 points every time someone calls out of turn! This is such a useful tool for classroom management. Want a positive twist? Instead of penalizing the impulsive kids, give bonus points to all the teams that don’t call out – or only to the fewest caller-outers. =)

• Break the class into 50/50 teams – Left side vs. Right

• Odds vs. Evens – Just go up and down every row alternating which team gets the points.

• Evil Mode – Get out a piece of paper; no talking; write down your answers and it counts for a grade! Muwahahaha!

• Teach the technology – I mentor one or two students to run the game, then they mentor one or two. By the end of the year, all the students have learned how to use it well and some have even picked up VBA programming as a result. This really makes it easy for accreditation from SACS and AISF as they are always looking for evidence of how we are preparing students for our technology saturated world. Sometimes I can even grade papers while the class is running itself!
