Fairground Game
Students answer prob questions and start thinking about different games they could make, working out the chance of winning. I gave them a starting budget of £50. The left over money is to be split between prize money for their games and money to be spent playing other games that they believe have been set up wrong or that they have a favourable chance of winning, e.g 1 in 4 chance of winning, game costs £1 to play but you win £10, should play this game and try and earn money for thier team.
