Welcome to the BAKUDAN game.
This is a game to practice Present Perfect in New Horizon 3, Unit 2, page 21.
Students make groups and try to answer the questions. Three types of questions are presented.
1. Bara Bara: words are scrambled and they must put them in the correct order to make a correct sentence.
2. Find & Fix: 3 sentences are presented. One or more sentences contain mistakes. They must identify the sentences with mistakes and correct them.
3. Talking Time.
HOW TO PLAY
* Click on Question to open panel. Click anywhere on the panel to hide it.
* Click on Answer to open panel. Click anywhere on the panel to hide it.
* Click on Play to start the timer (30s).
* Click on the wires to cut them.
Students must keep cutting wires (saying a colour for you to cut) until the bomb is diffused or it blows up.
If the timer runs out before the bomb is diffused or blown up, then click on the middle to trigger the explosion manually.
Points are shown on the right side table.
Detonating the bomb makes all the points disappear.
Diffusing the bomb allows them to keep their points.
Teams have 3 lives. If they detonate a bomb they lose a life. When they lose 3 lives they lose ALL their points.
Custom fonts are used in this game. You must download it for the text to display properly.
[Print Clearly Regular and Bold](https://www.fontspace.com/print-clearly-font-f973)
I often use Print Clearly because it's a very easy to read font and similar to the one they are familiar with in the textbook.
HOW TO EDIT
Click on the Home ribbon. Click Arrange. Click Selection Panel. Click the eye button to show or hide the answer panel, or question panel.
Students really enjoy this game because of the swingy nature of the points. There's a lot of pressure to cut the wires before the timer runs out that adds to the excitement of the game. It's a self-balancing game because teams that get ahead of other teams tend to not volunteer as much because they don't want to risk losing all their points. This gives weaker teams the chance to catch up because they have nothing to lose. However, eventually the teams that are ahead will have to take a risk to keep the lead. In this way, not always the strongest team wins, but sometimes the luckiest. ずるいネー
