    turns and blocking opponents� moves.

    3. Announce playing the game in advance as a graded recitation or a quiz to get students to

    focus better on the lesson and/or allow them opportunity to review on their own.

    4. Instead of making students play individually, form small groups of diverse learners who will

    consult and cooperate on answering as they strategize and compete against other groups.

    5. The game can be used to assess students� knowledge in place of a quiz. A student may be

    given a certain number of cards and asked to connect them.
