If your kids enjoy Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon cards, MTG, Hearthstone or the Best of the Best TCG Infinity Wars, and you happen to be practicing such conditionals as "If" or "when", then this game is for you.
The rules are explained in detail in the attached rule book. You'll need to print out 1 deck for every 6 students. You can have teams of students, or let them play individually.
It's an elimination game that requires the students to read the rules on the card, assess the situation on the board, and decide whether their card can be played or kept for later.
Tip: You'll need to reduce the number of healing cards in the game for time's sake. I've found that with the included number of healing cards, games can go way over time. Reduce them by at least half and I recommend reduce them by a quarter.
I can always design more cards for the sake of balance, so let me know your feedback and how your students played this game, and what you think could be improved.
Admittedly, it takes a fair bit of work to prep. But there's nothing better than printing and laminating in the morning with a coffee while listening to phat beats. It's a form of meditation for me at this point.
