How I Use It
We used this to teach math, and one of my students got very upset because the game lets students rob other students. He was the smart kid, and he was in first. At the last second, one of those blokes who sat there doing nothing answered one question and instantly was able to swap with the smart kid. Luckily we don't grade off this, but the only way to win is to steal from others, which is not how life works. It also told the smart kid he had a "0% accuracy rate" even though he got most of them right.
My Take
This game teaches children incorrect ideas and encourages cheating, lying, and other bad acts. It is not a fun game, as no children liked it. This wasn't caused by the game, but the smart kid got his head slammed against the desk by the other one. He is recovering. Long story short, the game teaches children that robbery is the only form of success.
