Students will adventure through Europe at the same time as the Plague. Can they survive?
Students will select a profile card telling them about someone who lived during the Plague. Each card is different and there are 18 options total.
Then, students will randomly draw a treasury card for how much gold they start with. Amounts range from 400 to 1,000 gold. Students will gain or lose gold throughout the simulation.
Students will go through a series of 12 questions and make decisions (some will be made for them based on their profile card). After each decision, students will gain or lose gold and record this on their sheet. At the end, they find out if they managed to survive the deadly Plague.
