A Different Kind of Gaming


inquiry.jpgGet a Clue!

This game was developed as an activity in a college level course about Homeland Security. As a group, you will play the game and then discuss the questions posted here to reflect on the learning.

Instructions

1. Divide into 4 teams. 1 person volunteers to be "instructor" (facilitator)
2. Facilitator divides cards by type: Terrorist, Weapon, and Target. Shuffle each of those 3 sets separately. Pick one from each set and put in envelope. These cards represent the terrorist attack plan.
3. Facilitator shuffles all remaining cards together and deals them out to the 4 groups.
4. Groups read the "Student Directions" printed on your table and make notes about the cards they were dealt. (Adjustment: your play time will be 15 minutes rather than 20 as printed in the directions)
5. Facilitator sets a timer for 15 minutes and announces "Start!",
6. Starting with Team 1, each team may ask another team if they hold any one of the three types of cards: terrorist, weapon, or target.
  • The requesting team may be shown any card that matches their guess
  • After each team asks their question of a team, they can make a guess at the weapon, terrorist and target. The facilitator responds by telling them if they got 0, 1, 2, or 3 correct --but not which category
  • If a team correctly guesses all three cards -they win.
  • If no team guesses all three cards, repeat the round of questioning
  • After 15 minutes, the facilitator announces "STOP!"
