i just finished playing this game with a student ... and there were 5 women and 19 men!!!
don't judge. i play games. at work. all. day. long. (in between paperwork. shhh ... don't remind me about that.) the kind of games that you grew up playing. the kind that i bet you are wishing that you could play while you grovel in front of a computer in a cubicle. i'm not all that jealous. and, yes, i stick with the good ole stand-by board games. candyland, guess who and hi-ho!cherry-o! are some of my favorites. believe me when i say, kids hardly know how to manuver a game piece around a game board anymore. sad.
my husband has
and yes ... i actually make the kids DO work while we play the games. it's not ALL fun...
so anyhoo ... back to my original story. the number of girls vs. boys. what's up with that?? if you pull a girl card ... your opponent has much higher odds of figuring out who it is. so, so not fair.
so i'm off to explore. maybe you can help?? does the new(er) version have a more equal ratio of boys to girls?? 'cause i may just have to buy a new game set.
and on a side note...
as a game of categorization with my kiddos that i work with, i will print off pictures of foods or animals or the current theme of the month...and put them in the little boxes. the kids have to ask questions to eliminate or determine which vocabulary word is the right one. (e.g., is it a fruit? does it have feathers?) loads of fun over here at coconutbelly land. i tell ya.
