HexGame is a game for large screen display in a classroom, ideally on an interactive (touch-enabled) whiteboard.
Challenge your students to come up with answers to questions like “What does T in TCP/IP stand for?”, or “What R is a device that chooses where to send packets, according to a set of rules?”.
You provide the questions, ones with single word answers, and set up the game board (click the ≡ icon in the bottom right for options), ready for two teams, or two players. You could play it as first to call out, or take it in turns.
This was a testbed project to see how pure SVG interfaces would be from a workflow/development angle. I used Inkscape to design the game board and other UI. I gave IDs to all the elements I knew I was going to want to interact with, and exported it as “optimised” SVG. In Inkscape, this means stripping out nearly everything that doesn’t contribute to the look.
