The GIGAME is an electronic roll-and-move board game initially developed for the Law of Torts course. Students roam through a virtual SMU and earn points through correctly answering questions (MCQ, True/False, open-ended questions) of increasing levels of difficulty. The game can be played as a single-player or multi-player mode. In the multi-player mode, students can play as opponents or collaborators.
The game can be played outside of class time, either as a form of revision for the topics learnt or preparation for future classes. The instructor also used the game in class for students to practice and revise materials.
