My Cardboard Arcade Game!

If I did this again I would make several changes. First, I would think of this game from a 4th grader’s point of view and ask myself the questions, “Would I play this game? How many times would I play it? Would I bring my friends to play it again?”. I would like to make my game so that my answer to all those questions would be “Of course!”. I’d do this by making the hoops bigger so that it would be easier for the kids to make a good toss. Another thing I’d change is the stacked cups, I’d place them further away from the walls of the box so that making the toss would be even easier.

I’d give future students who do this project some advice. First, I’d tell them to consider what kind of cardboard games they would want to play. Once they have the answer, ask yourself if you can make the game and how long it would take. If you’re satisfied with those answers then go ahead!

My biggest obstacle was making this game possible. The front of the box was too high and it was physically impossible unless you stood right in front of it. Like a carnival game, it was rigged. We decided to cut the front a bit lower but it didn’t change much except that it was kind of easier. We just decided to leave it at that, and it was a flop. It didn’t work! No one could make it and every toss was so close but not quite.

Welcome to Your New Blog!

When you blog you create posts and posts are categorised according to your subject. Some categories have already been set up for you. If you need more categories you can add them as needed. It’s important that your posts have the following:

  • An engaging title – this should not include the name of the subject since this is referenced in the category.
  • Body – this is where you share your learning. This can include text, images, embedded videos from Dragons’ Tube or elsewhere. You should always consider how your post looks to your audience. Is it engaging? Do they want to keep reading?
  • Category – select one that has been set for you or add a new category. Posts can have more than one category e.g. Humanities and Myself as a Learner
