(Make Your Own!)
As you conclude a topic you feel your class has really engaged with, why not ask students to design their own game? This can be a great assessment tool, encourage team work and develop interpersonal skills as students work through the stages of designing, making and playing their games.
The game can be any type that will allow students to show their understanding of the topic being explored, for example; board games, dice games, Question & Answer games. Or... a modified version of an existing game, for example; trivia quizzes, celebrity head, Pictionary, multiple choice games (eg. Who Wants to be a Millionaire?).
Before starting the game making process - design a rubric with students so they know what they need to display in their game design.
Here are some handy rubric making websites...
