Challenge 9

SC2. I can use my resources to make my chosen game.

SC3. I can consider how I will explain the rules of my game.

SC4. I can reflect upon the success of what I have created.

Create your game:

Today, I want you to create your game using the items from around your home. You probably won’t find exactly the same things that were originally used when the game was first played so you will need to improvise.

For my game I chose the Egyptian game of Senet. I have included some photos of how I recreated the game using what I had around the house (see images attached below).

Once completed, I would like you to reflect on how well you did when creating you game. You wil need to consider if you can make improvements and are what would you have done differently if you did this again.
