Coup

(2-6 players; 15 minutes; ages 9+)

Coup is a game of bluff and deception. Without a doubt, it is one of the most popular games I’ve ever introduced to the grade 5-9 classroom. The game is ridiculously fast with two players – maybe 5 minutes…¬†Players are eliminated during gameplay, but usually this is not a problem because the game is so fast and interesting to spectate.

There should be no such thing as boring mathematics.
