As an Educator
AGLOA recommends that you begin with either EQUATIONS, if you are math oriented, or PRESIDENTS and PROPAGANDA, if you are language oriented.
If you choose EQUATIONS
You must be near an existing Academic Games League or have contact with an experienced EQUATIONS coach who can teach your coaches how to play EQUATIONS. Contact AGLOA for information about local Leagues or experienced coaches.
Schedule a training session for EQUATIONS with the League or with the experienced coach.
Purchase EQUATIONS games from WFF’N PROOF and (optionally, but recommended) learning materials from the AGLOA website.
Begin play within your school, then schedule some matches with other schools. Several schools can come together on the same day at a designated site. Each match lasts about 35 minutes, so two or three matches can be played at a time.
Enter Regional and/or the Academic Games National Tournament.
If you choose PRESIDENTS and PROPAGANDA
Go to Online Learning on the www.academicgames.org web site.
Play PRESIDENTS online with the complimentary sets of questions. As many players as you wish can play and learn online.
Play PROPAGANDA online with the complimentary sets of questions. As many players as you wish can play and learn online.
Purchase the learning materials for PRESIDENTS and PROPAGANDA. They include hundreds of additional examples for each game.
