Creating a What Belongs Game
What Belongs challenges players to recall the members of a series of categories. Go ahead and explore a few examples:
The key to a successful game is having a column of data that can be thought of as containing a limited number of categories. In this list of countries, the Continent column is a good candidate, since it contains a mere six categories (Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, and Oceania) that all countries in the world fit into.
Here’s how you turn this into a game:
And here, again, is the resulting game: Countries and Continents
You’ll be surprised by what can be a category. Take a look at this data set of famous works of art.
You wouldn’t think of artists themselves as categories, but it works: Whose Art Is That?
And here's how this game was made:
Now it’s your turn. Give it a try and have fun!
