Period:_____ AP Government Board Game Project Due Date: __________________ Board games are classic American pastimes. Often, games allow players to learn about a specific topics such as the steps to world domination or how to count. Sometimes games outright test the players knowledge about a particular topic. Despite this fact, people generally have a good time while playing them. Recently many classic board games have been re-imagined to address new topics or apply new themes designed to promote a specific movie or even another toy. In this assignment you will be working with a team to create a board game that tests players knowledge of the AP Government curriculum. These games will be used as our review strategy in the days leading up to the AP Exam. To complete this task you must: Work in a group of 4 students Produce a board game that tests students knowledge of all six units of the AP curriculum. o This can be through trivia based questions and possibly through in game actions that display your understanding. Ex. Sinking opinion polls go back three spaces. The game must be playable by four to six people. You must be able to play the game. Your peers will be evaluating it! You must use all of the topics covered in class. o I would recommend trying to use multiple choice formats to quiz your players but the choice is yours. Any of the games listed below could serve as models for game play and design. o You can modify existing games in ways to include government related trivia or information. o You can also create an original board game. Your final game must include: Information and Questions testing AP Government knowledge. A colorful and creative game board All the pieces needed to play your game o Ex. Cards, pawns, spinners, paper money, dice Easy to follow directions Reflective Packaging/a box to store the game with a description of the game My Group: Names Contact Info Themes/Topics Unit 1 Constitutional Underpinnings Unit 4 Institutions of Government Unit 2 Political Beliefs and Behaviors Unit 5 Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Unit 3 Linkage Institutions Unit 6 Public Policy Model Games Risk Trivial Pursuit Sorry Monopoly Careers Clue Chutes & Ladders Candy Land Trouble Life Where in the World is Carmen Mall Madness Payday Sandiego?
