Troy :  Troy A Homemade PowerPoint Game By Katy Butler University of Georgia Play the game Game Directions Story Game Preparation The Story of Troy:  The Story of Troy Paris and Helen have eloped and total chaos is breaking loose! The Greeks are allying together to bring her back to Menelaus, launching a thousand ships! But the Trojans are great warriors and won’t give her up without a fight for their dignity. Who will win this epic battle? It’s up to you and your classmates to determine the outcome using and applying your knowledge of the Trojan War… Will you rewrite history – will the Trojans win? Or will you establish the Greeks as the victors once again? Home Page Game Directions:  Game Directions Greeks and Trojans – your goal is to advance and destroy the army of your enemies! Here’s how you will play: Divide into 2 groups – you will either be a Trojan or a Greek. Flip a coin to see which team goes first. At the beginning of each turn, your team will select 1 individual to answer 1 question – no person may answer a second question until all students have answered 1 question. If your team correctly answers the question, you will draw a War card. Follow the directions on the war card – you will advance a unit of your army or destroy a unit of the enemy’s army, for example. (Note: 1 army unit = 1 game piece.) If you advance 1 unit of your army all the way to enemy lines (as indicated), you destroy 1 unit of your enemy's army. If you do not answer the question correctly, it becomes the other team’s turn to answer a question. The first team to annihilate the opposing army - all 9 pieces - wins!! If you run out of questions before an army is annihilated, the team with the most units left is the winner! Return Game Preparation:  Game Preparation Gameboard: Print out slides 5-6 and tape them together so that “Trojans” fits together. Then print out slides 7-8 and tape them together so that “Greeks” fits together. Tape together with Trojans and Greeks at opposite ends of the board. Use poster board or another hard surface for durability. “War” Cards: Print out 3 copies of slide 9 (preferably on heavy stock with a distinct color), then cut into individual question cards. Game Pieces: Print out slides 10-11 (preferably on heavy stock on two separate distinct colors), then cut into individual moving pieces – each piece is 1 unit of the army. Home Page Slide9:  Overhear enemy plans – Destroy 3 units of the opposing army! Head start – Advance 1 unit of your army 5 spaces! Good strategy – Advance your army 1 space and destroy 1 unit of the opposing army! Good planning – Advance 1 unit of your army 2 spaces! Great weather – Advance 3 units of your army 2 spaces each! You accept good advice – Move 2 units of your army 2 spaces each and destroy 2 units of the opposing army! A stroke of luck – Move 1 unit of your army ahead 2 spaces and destroy 1 unit of the opposing army! Rain causes your enemy to retreat – Move 1 unit of your enemy’s arm back 2 spaces! Great teamwork – Choose 1 of your enemy’s units to move back 1 space! You’re rejuvenated after a day’s rest – destroy any 2 units of your enemy’s army!
