Game Idea 1 and 2

Hide and Seek 2.0


Camera/ Cellphone device



Players will choose 1 player to be the person that looks for the other players.

The seeker has to find the players but instead of saying I found you, he needs to take a picture of the people who hide. He then needs to send them the picture in order to declare that they were found.





Camera or cell phone device


Players will get into even teams.

Players shall decide which of their teammates goes first.

Referee will ask for an item, shape or color and players will go around the perimeter to take picture that's is close to what the referee asked of them.

The time limit is 3 minutes per person and the team with the most pictures will win.

If two people have taken the same picture neither team will get a point.


Elevator Pitch

Ever wanted to quickly study the Periodic Table in an easy and fun way with friends? Well in Chemical Clues you are able answer questions while trying to figure out some patterns going on in the Periodic Table.

Winning condition

-In order to win you need to have the highest pattern score out of everyone


-One player will serve as referee and ask the questions

-Players have 1 minute to answer the question, players who got the right answer get 2 points

-These points will be used to buy perk cards or to use those points buy pattern points. 8 points = 1 pattern point

-Players will receive 3 random perks cards, players cannot start with duplicate cards

-Perk Cards cost 8 points

-When a perk card is used put the perk card in the pile of perk cards


Goal: To familiarize yourself with the periodic table and make out patterns

End Game

End Game: Once players go through all the questions the game, have converted their points into pattern points and have said the patterns that they have noticed in the table. The final question that the referee will ask is why is the periodic table, "periodic"? People will get 2 minutes for this questions. Each person will write their answers and then say them out loud when the time ends. Whoever gets it right gets 4 points. Multiple people may get this question right.

Electron Configuration Guideline

Add electrons to the sublevels in the correct order of filling.

There are 7 levels in total!

Add two electrons to each s sublevel, 6 to each p sublevel, 10 to each d sublevel, and 14 to each f sublevel.

So to properly do this, you need to know what number the element given to you is on the periodic table.


Oxygen is number 8 on the periodic table .

This means that Oxygen has 8 electrons.

So what you do is you put fill up the level and sublevels until you have used all the electrons on Oxygen.

So really quick!

1s2 2s2 2p4 That's the configuration of Oxygen! So to break things down the normal number (for example 1) is the level while letter is the sublevel. Now the subscript number is the amount of electrons went into the sublevel. After a sublevel is filled up, electrons will go to the next level to fill that level up.

Valence Electron Guideline

So Valence Electrons, how do you figure what they are?

Simple, look at the top levels of the electron configuration. What do I mean by that?

Okay well top levels is the where the basically the highest level the electron was able to reach. However, if it didn't fill up the entire level then you must take the last two sub levels' subscript and add them up.

Important: Elements with a full valence electron are called octet. This means that they have a filled up their outer level to the max.


Oxygen: Oxygen's top level/sub level was 2s2 and 2p4. Why both because the level wasn't filled up completely. So now, you add up 2+4 which is 6 and that's is the valence electrons for Oxygen .

Guideline on Patterns

One way to make patterns is to see the recurring patterns going on the periodic table. Here's a hint, why is the elements located the way they are? Check their mass. So a pattern is that the periodic table seems to be listed from the lowest mass to highest mass. Another one maybe that they're listed from 1 electron to 114 electrons. These are just one of the many patterns going on the table.

Perk Cards

  1. Proton: Get 2 points
  2. Electron: Choose an opponent, that opponent loses 2 points
  3. Neutron: You can negate the effect of an electron card
