— The Dual Enrollment Game

September 27th 2018 - News Release

Research shows that high school students who take community college courses through dual enrollment get better grades in high school and are more likely to enter and stay in college — and attain a degree or a certificate.

The object of the game is to earn college credit. Taking the role of students, players make progress thanks to factors on the yellow cards, or they are forced into detours described on blue cards.

At the beginning of each turn, a player rolls the dice and moves the matching number of spaces. Depending where they land, one of three things happens next:

  1. If they land on a blank square, or a square that contains the top of a ladder or bottom of a slide, they pick a card of the same color as the square, read the card, and follow its instructions.
  2. If a player lands at the foot of a ladder, they get to climb it and advance but do not draw a card. Or…
  3. Watch out! — if they land at the top of a slide, they tumble to its bottom without drawing a card.

The first to the top earns college credit!
