About this Game
Engage your students with the spooky interactive whiteboard game, Grave Danger. Students click on graves to reveal a yummy treat or a nasty trick. Treats give points…tricks do not! This game also has built in odd occurrences and can be triggered in secret by the teacher to spook students. Odd occurrences include screen flickering, bugs crawling across the screen, fog rolling in, a waving skeleton and many more events.
Try before you buy.

How to Play Grave Danger
Start by choosing if you'll play with teams or without. If playing with teams, set a reasonable number of points to reach in order for a team to be chosen. 10-20 points is a good amount to choose.
Ask a question to the class, an individual student, or to the teams.
The student that answers chooses a grave and touches it. The student will either uncover a treat (a piece of candy worth 1-3 points) or a trick (a monster worth no points). If you're playing in team mode, add that many points to the team's point tracker at the top of the screen.
Play until either a team wins or every student has had a chance to play and (hopefully) earn some candy.
