Mass Review File Folder Game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.

Mass Review File Folder Game is based on the traditional Reversi board game of strategy for 2 players enjoyed all over the world. Game play typically takes place on an 8 x 8 grid game board. At the start, each player commands 2 pieces each, one player controlling white pieces and the other controlling black. As the game progresses, the 8 x 8 grid game board gradually fills up with additional playing pieces. It is not unusual for all 64 squares on the game board to be occupied by the end of the game.


Mass Review File Folder Game: For 2 Players or 2 Teams

* The idea is to answer questions about Mass so you can trap one or more opponents’ pieces between two of your pieces. Those opponents’ pieces then change color to become your pieces.

* The game ends when both you and your opponent cannot play another piece, or if every square on the board is filled, the game is over. You count up the number of black pieces and the number of white pieces and the winner is the one with the most pieces.





*This game is in accordance with the new Roman Missal that was implemented on November 27, 2011.
