Week 6 – Free Play

This week for free play my group decided to play Incan Gold since we did not have a chance to last weekend. Overall, the game play went extremely well as everyone knew the rules of the game. Each player either won the game or came in second place which made it fun. We spent time talking about each others hobbies and found topics to relate on, which was interesting.

I like that this game includes both luck and skill. There is a certain skill to knowing exactly how much risk one should be taking. In fact, the hardest part about this game is knowing when to stop. I think it is really easy to get carried away and keep flipping your card saying you want to continue the journey. However, there are a lot of negative cards that will take all of your points away from you. I really do not dislike any aspect of this game.

I would recommend this game to any math teacher. I think this game shows the aspects of probability and could really enforce that idea to many students (and it is super fun to play!) I think this game ties to leadership in the fact that in order to play this game you must lead yourself to success. You have to choose the right time to make a risk in order to win!
