Do you ever get bored of the same old board games? Well, try changing the rules of other games to meet your specific school counseling needs. Typically, it's just a matter of changing the questions.

One of my favorite games to revamp is How to Train Your Dragon: Dragon Training 101
. The board is VERY simple, so you can create your own questions for students to answer. I use it to discuss anger (the "dragon" that needs to be trained).
I ask students questions based on the issues they are currently experiencing. This allows for even greater game play flexibility.
You could use this game with students in both individual and small group counseling settings.
A few months ago, I posted
a video (right) about creating your own games. This is an inexpensive, yet effective, way to help your students.
