How to Play
Students play this game in pairs and each pair gets a game board and a soccer ball.
They put the soccer ball on the "Start Here" circle. One student is Player 1 and the other is Player 2.
When the game begins, students will do rock, paper, scissors.
The winner will move a certain number of spaces toward their goal depending on what they won with and say a word/sentence according to the box they landed on. Example: Player 1 wins with scissors, so they move the soccer ball 1 box to the right toward their goal. Then in the next round, Player 2 wins with rock. They then move the soccer ball 3 spaces to the left toward their goal.
They continue to do rock, paper, scissors until somebody reaches their goal.
When someone scores a goal, they start over in the "Start Here" circle.
The first student to score 3 goals is the winner!
To play as a speaking game, use images in the boxes. To play as a reading game, use words or sentences in the boxes.
To increase or decrease the time of gameplay, feel free to adjust the number of goals to win.
(NOTE: The runtime for this game can VARY because it has no set ending. I usually let students play until class time is up or set a point goal such as whoever scores 5 goals first wins.)
