Basketball SHOWDOWN!

Its the championship game of the ACC tournament.


Your team has made it to the final game through hard
work and determination. But for the last game, the
referees have decided to change the rules. In order
to score points, your team has to answer questions in
various categories. The harder the questions, the
more points you rack up. But be careful! If you miss
the answer, your opponent has the chance to steal both
the question AND the points!
The clock is about to start ticking, so grab your
mascot, hit the floor and

The Rules:
The goal of the game is to get as many baskets
as you can. But you can only get the points if
you answer a question correctly. Choose your
teams mascot and move him around your side of
the board following the arrows. When you land
on a number spot you can either answer a
question or move to the next spot, BUT you can
only move ONE spot a turn! Choose wisely!
Number 3 spots have hard questions and earn you
three points.
Number 2 spots have medium questions and earn
you two points.
Number 1 spots have easy questions and earn you
one point.
After answering the question, your opponent has
the chance to shoot a basket.
MORE Rules
If you answer a question correctly, add the
number of points you earned to your score. BUT
BE CAREFUL! If you answer incorrectly, your
opponent has the chance to steal.
Keep score on a piece of paper that both you
and your opponent can see.
Play the game and answer as many questions as
you can. When your Teacher says Times UP!,
add your points up to see who won.

Ready? SET?
