Go play! was part of a wider project that I was working on for the BBC. However it never came to be released to the public. Go Play! is a simple programme which allows the user to create games and activities, such as lunchtime activities, PE type activities quickly and simply. Supporting literacy in that it requires the user to write in an instructional manner – providing the instructions of how to set up the game, how to play and rules.
Games can be modified and existing games can be drawn using a simple drag and drop menu. Very quick and easy to navigate as you’d expect.
Change it! – adapt existing templates, change the rules, instructions, equipment etc. Great for Young Leaders!
Sketch it! – Understand and comprehend the game from the written instructions – use the drag and drop menu to create the cards to match the instructions!
Invent it! – Do it all! Write the instructions, How to Play, Rules etc. Draw the game cards to match the instructions! Print off and play with friends or use to inspire younger pupils through sports leadership programmes.
You can save your work, adapt it, tweak it and reprint.
