For Genre Reading Class, I made a board game for the book The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. It is about a group of kids who are trying to make it across a wasteland to a safe haven where they will receive a cure to a disease the entire world has.
I followed this plot for the basis of my board game. You started on one corner of the board and you had to make it to the other side through a maze of different areas. There were six different areas; Hideout Area, Tunnel Area, Wasteland Area, Underground Area, Shelter Area, and Mountain Area. Based on what type of area you landed on you drew a certain card. These cards could do many things, such as move you to a new spot on the board, give you some sort of special bonus, or make you move your opponent to a completely new area.
I presented this game to the rest of the genre reading class and we played it for an hour. It was a lot of fun to play together, and it was really cool to play a game I made from scratch.
Enjoy the video of us playing!
