5 Different, fun and engaging games which includes:
1. Checkers- A strategy game played on an 8×8 checkerboard. The origin of Checkers is known to be somewhere around 3000 BC. The game is played by two opponents, on opposite sides of the gameboard. One player has the dark pieces; the other has the light pieces. Players alternate turns in the attempt to be the first to capture all the opponent pieces. We need to capture the board before the opponent (computer) does.
2. MaxIT– A popular game with the students, it has a board filled with numbers, with the opponent (computer ) and we have to beat it with a higher score. And sometimes the challenge is keep your score lower. The rows / columns of numbers belong to one player. Think, Plan, Calculate and Win!
3. Elements – The planet is going to be overtaken by Ice if we don’t save it by using fire! An interesting game where we compete with the computer to change the colour of the board to orange depicting ‘Fire’. The opponent is fast and will beat you unless you think ahead. One Move can affect the future moves and unless we use our brains the computer will beat us each time!
4. Climb up– Mountain Climbing is tough and good part is we need to help the climber figure out the best route to grab the red flag! Use ropes of various lengths and tug it to the peg. The climber will use the path you create to win. No opponents in the game. Play and win solo!
5. Lockdown- These robots want to take over our world and we won’t let them. A small robot is trying to escape and we will have to stop it. We need to black his path, but it is fast and smart well it’s a robot. Race against the next move, think ahead and block all exits before it escapes. Well !! there are more than 25 exit points, that’s one challenge worth taking!
