Find the 'Flag Template' link at the bottom right of the website. Photocopy this template onto 1 red piece of paper, 1 blue, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 green and 1 grey/white. Laminate to extend the life of your flags.
Connect to a data projector and turn this on, along with the sound.
Choose the MAKEorBREAK game you want to play by clicking on it in the My Games section. There is a total of 60 questions maximum for curriculum and general knowledge games.
Separate your class into a maximum of SIX groups and allocate each group ONE of your photocopied coloured flags (pieces of paper).
How to use Team-mode
Click a question number to start playing.
The first group to have a person standing with their flag raised above their head gets a shot at the answer. (This means that teams must discuss the answer and settle on an answer BEFORE they stand up.)
If a team answers incorrectly, the second student to stand can have a go, etc.
If a student answers correctly, they can choose to MAKE one of their own castles or BREAK an opponent's castle. Click the blank square space to make, click on a castle to break!
It may be necessary to penalise a team by destroying a castle if they break major rules eg telling their team-mate an answer after they have stood up.
It can help to nominate a trusted student to be in charge of keeping score and building/destroying castles. This frees you up to decide which group answered first and second etc.
Team-mode also makes adjudication a lot easier.
It can be fun to add the odd ‘double-point score’ bonus from time to time. Before clicking on the next question, simply call out ‘double-point score’.
When entering your own questions, be aware that MAKEorBREAK works best with less text and not so much length in the answers.
MAKEorBREAK has a simple interface and flexible scoring options so that you can play it your way!
