During a P.E lesson, we played a game. We didn’t know what the game was called, so I called it the game of life.
“The Game of Life” is basically capture the flag. Instead of going against another team, every team was against each other. If you don’t know what capture the flag is: You have to try to get other people’s points by going into their base and stealing bean bags (points). If you get caught trying to steal bean bags, you get sent to jail. Since we play on the 6th floor pitch, jail is in the corner.
Since there are different houses in our school (Mountain Lion, Raven, Orca & Bear), we each had our own teams. I am a mountain lion so me and the other mountain lions were a team. Our teacher pretended that his favorite color was blue, so he gave all the bean bags to the blue team (Bears). Because he liked the blue team, we couldn’t tag them, but they were allowed to tag us.
We had a lot of people on our team. I was defending the bean bags. The bears took most of our bean bags, but I think that they felt bad so they left one bean bag in every team’s base.
Overall, we did a good job. We got most of the Raven’s points. We started low in the beginning but we worked our way up to a lot of bean bags.
At the end of P.E, people got angry because they thought that the game was not fair. The P.E teacher was telling us that life isn’t fair because lots of people are rich and some people are poor. In this game, the bears were the rich people. The other teams were the poor people.
I didn’t really care if I won or lost. It was fun, and I thought it wasn’t as bad as the other P.E classes.
