Rich’s Top 5

Throughout the episode, Rich mentions a few games. If any of these games sound like something you might enjoy playing personally or in your class, you can help support our podcast by purchasing these games through our Amazon affiliate links. We will earn a small commission at no expense to you. Check out the games below:

1. Codenames

A great game to review English language vocabulary or content related vocabulary, like historical terms. The game comes with basic words that usually take on multiple meanings. This is a fun family game that can also be adapted to your classroom. There are also other versions like Codenames Pictures, Codenames Disney, as well as some others. Check out our learner edition episode about Codenames (Codenames – 006).

2. Werewolf

A classic secret role, social deduction board game! This game is great as a fun downtime game you can play with your students. Dustin has used it to teach basic grammar structures to give opinions. You can listen to the episode about Werewolf too! (Werewolf – 001)

3. Secret Hitler

Secret Hitler is another secret role, social deduction board game. It can be a good supplemental game to help instill different historical themes related to Fascism and Democracy.

4. World War I Review Game 

This is Rich’s review game he uses when teaching the content from World War I. You can listen to the episode where Rich discusses this game on our podcast as well (Teacher Edition: Games in the Classroom – 016). Also, feel free to bother Rich and let him know you miss him, by emailing him about the game!

5. Knuckle Bones

A super old school dexterity game. This is Rich’s all-time favorite game. You need to compete by completing various tasks in the game.
