A short description about the game of “bullseye”

“Bullseye” is one of the oldest games. I remember when I was a child, I always watched TV shows where this game was played. It is a funny game for both children and adults. Teachers can use this game in their classroom because it can spark their learners’ interest and will add more fun to their class. I guarantee that.

This game’s template was created differently from the grid layout of other games. Download it from the link below, you will notice that the design of the board is quite the same as the one in jeopardy and mystery squares. There are different points earned for each section of the board. There are four sections and each section is worth certain points. Check the table, below:

The value of points should reflect the degree of difficulty of your questions. There are no questions in this game. To play it, you will have to plan your questions which reflect the content beforehand.
