Creating their own game

The 6th graders are rotating in groups of 7 or 8 and spending four classes focused on strategy games. After they learn the basics of game etiquette and the rules of  a game they split up and play with two or three other students. 

Examples of focus questions to consider while playing are:

 What is  the probability of getting a sum when rolling two dice? 

Can you design a new record sheet for Clue that will help you to be a better player?

One group has taken the game of Carcassonne and added elements from Risk and Stratego to create their own game.
