Strong Points: I think the "Circus theme" is very amusing with bright colors, the students will enjoy the music that is played during the four different games to choose from.  The student will want to do really well to gain tickets  which will help them at the end of the game.  The activities they do in this game reflects their knowledge of the objectives should be met.
Weak Points:  I found it to be difficult to figure out to purpose of this game at first, but once I mastered it a few times, then it was quite easy to see the intent.  I also think if there was a larger variety of places to go to then it would spark my interest even more.
