Our favourite board games

2014-06-19 12.04.12

On Thursday we had a board games day. Joseph, our music teacher, came in with lots of board games. One of the games was called Wings of Glory. The aim of the game is to fly your plane around using movement cards and get close enough to shoot your enemy’s planes. If your enemy got near enough and you were in front of them, depending on the distance, you would take 1 or 2 damage cards. the cards had random 0 to 5 damage levels and, if your card had a gun jam symbol whoever shot you couldn’t shoot for three turns. At the start of each round we all put down three movement cards, then we all moved our first movement, then the second, then the third.

We played lots of other games: Monopoly, Uno and Avalon. In Avalon, if you were the good guys you had to try and succeed at least  three quests out of five. The bad guys had to try and stop the good guys from succeeding in the quests while not being discovered.

Another game was Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers. Using tiles we had to create landscapes which included forests, creeks and hunting grounds. As we placed tiles we also placed our tribesmen to gather berries from forests, fish from creeks and hunters to hunt deer, mammoth and boar.

Chess program

2014-06-12 14.36.10

Every fortnight Ron comes and teaches us chess. He teaches us what the pieces are and how they move. Ron taught us special moves called ‘the Spanish torture’ and ‘the Arabian mate’. Grades 3 to 6 all had a game of chess against each other. I had a game of chess against Jasmyn and it was a stalemate.
