Not what I expected

When I saw this game I thought it would be great for my students because most of them have absolutely no idea to speak up for themselves. However, I find this game a tad boring and lacking. You land on a mystery word and it just gives you the word. Are the students supposed to define it or what. Not to mention you can just scroll past that word to get another word. There also isn't a definition that the students can look at after guessing what defining the word. Same with the challenges-- it gives you a scenario or a fill in the blank sentence but doesn't really give any suggestions on what appropriate responses are for the students though naturally they will vary. The worse thing is the short amount of time it takes to play. I rolled a 6, 5 and 5 and like that I was done with the game in 10 minutes-- that's hardly going to keep students engaged. It might last a little longer if more than 2 ppl could play but not by much. Maybe with sometime improvements will be made. Until then I will be uninstalling and creating my own game for students.

Great concept.... But the app is limited for the price. Wish there were more vocabulary words covered.... And more social situations... Arrangement is odd. End game button too close to next player and hit accidentally. After playing twice all is covered and kids were bored. i considered getting the board game but at $60. Is it worth it or just as limited?

Love it!

This makes being an itinerant a ton easier! It's somewhat hard to read on an iPod...but that might be my excuse for an iPad!!!

Thank you!!!

Would love to see more games for HI students!!! Ear parts, hearing aid parts, FM systems....the list is endless!!!
