FA16- Project 2: Week 2

The game I played this week was called “That’s Your Right.” The game was very enjoyable because it teaches you about the amendments and your rights as a human being. The game can be played with multiple people or as a single player. When selecting single player the computer will generate an opponent for you to play against. At the beginning of the game the player picks 5 amendments to learn about. They are then given cards that have different scenarios and you must match the amendment with the scenario. For example the amendment might said freedom or speech and the scenario card would say “You are not arrested after your neighbor calls the cop on the presidential sign on your front lawn.” This is an example of our right to say what we feel without being penalized for it. It is our constitutional right to have a say. This is a great learning experience because while you are enjoying the game you are also learning about the amendments and becoming educated on the rights as an individual. This is an educational game that would be great for children to play in school when first learning about the amendments. Not only are children justing their brain to think and apply each amendment they are also having fun while doing it. The game is very enjoyable and helpful. The game was designed perfectly with no broken aspects, it was fully functioning. It was very easy to navigate. At first the game can be tricky but once you realize how to move the tokens and apply they to the scenario cards the game was a breeze. I would recommend this game to teachers who are trying to teach the amendments as while as parents of young children. The game is a great learning experience for children. I believe all age groups would enjoy this game. Whether you are trying to leaner and teach the amendments or if you already know them and just wish to refresh your memory. “That’s Your Right” is a must play!
