The Silk Road Game

We have been doing a lot of preparation and planning for our Silk Road adventure. Now, it is time to see if all that hard work paid off and whether or not you survive the trip. You have no idea what will happen to you on the Silk Road. However, you do know that bad stuff will happen to you, so try to prepare for those bad situations. Just like in real life, the Silk Road is a tough, brutal journey that guarantees no one survival. The Silk Road has chewed up and spit out many travelers. With this powerpoint, you will see how you do in the Silk Road adventure as it takes you through the scenarios. These scenarios were chosen at random. In the back of your journal, keep track of how many points you have, how much money you have, and how much silk you have. During the trip, you will either gain points or lose points. At the end of the game, you need to have a positive amount of points, positive amount of money, and silk in order to survive and win the game. Good Luck!

Cierrah: "Sure! It was the Qin Dynasty! Easy one."
Me: "Thanks! But do you know which dyansty had Oracle bones?"
Cierrah: "Oh, yeah, that was the Shang dynasty! It was also the first dynasty. Can you give me harder questions?"
Me: "Sure. How long does it normally take to travel the Silk Road?"
Cierrah: About 1 year! Come on! Think of harder ones!"
Me: "Okay! Geez, bossy. Which dynasty was broken up into two parts?"
Cierrah: "Duh, the Zhou dynasty! Easter and Western parts! You've just wasted 5 minutes of my life!"
Me: "Oh, but i haven't because we're studying! Which dynasty's leader tried to live forever?"
Cierrah: "Easy, the Qin dynasty. His name was Shi Huangdi, he actually killed himseld while trying to live forever!"
Me: "Weird! Okay, that's all the questions I have for you right now, see you next time!"
