A Fun Cacti Game

Growing up in Arizona, we never paid much attention to cacti.  As we came to know the varied and sometimes bizarre characteristics of the cacti I previously ignored, we became intrigued. For example, a saguaro cactus can grow up to 5 stories high, and humans have eaten the pads of prickly pear cacti for centuries.

We think other students might also find cacti interesting and suggest making a board game. This game would be like the board game Sorry. You will have questions about different cacti, and if you get the fact right you will get to move a coupe of squares. The person who gets his or her 4 cacti home first wins.  We wanted to make this game because it's fun to lean interesting facts about cacti.



Here is a list of facts that you can use for your game to make card:
