How to adapt games for your unique situation
Have a small group?

No problem! Most games that call for groups can be played by individuals, or by having your entire class work together as one group. We’ve built in flexibility so you can play it by ear when you see how many kids show up.

Want to modify games to fit your kids’ abilities?

It’s easy! If you have younger children, give them added advantages—a head start, shorter or smaller goals, or bonus points awarded right up front...
