Students want to set up a gaming club.
Some students at my school want to set up a club for board and card games. Most of the students who have had my class have played and enjoyed Dixit, and a few others I know enjoy Chess, and a few others enjoy Blockus.
What I need now are suggestions for board/card games that are not overly complicated that I could possibly get a grant for in order to get games besides Chess and Checkers for the club.
I know a number of students are interested in Yu-Gi-Oh/Pokemon and other CCG's, but aside from providing them a time and place to play, I don't want to invest money into CCG's for obvious reasons. I'm not sure if games along the lines of Carcassone or Settlers of Catan would be in the interest range or difficulty range of the students as of yet, but I'm looking for suggestions.
Spot It comes to mind.
Jungle Speed would be too competitive/physical.
Remember, I teach at a school where a significant number of students suffer from mental or social disorders, or both. So anything that takes too long to explain or involves very deep levels of strategy might not catch their interest.
