Time Required for the RPG
Activity: Time required (approximately)
*Character creation 1- 1.5 hours
*RPG adventures (4 total) 45 minutes each
*Translation (4 total) 20-30 minutes each
Moving the "boats" 5-10 minutes per time (You will need to move the boats approximately 6x)
The absolute minimum:
Create characters, do the first RPG = approximately 3 hours (the activities that are starred)
The whole program:
If you wish to adopt the whole program, I suggest that you do this the following way: Have students create characters the Thursday before February break and finish the process the next day, on Friday before vacation. Explain process the Friday after you get back from vacation and then do one of the 3 RPG's every other week. That will take the game approximately 6 weeks to finish. It is likely that you will need to skip some weeks due to vacations, field trips etc. In my experience, the game usually draws to a close 8- 10 weeks after we start. The fourth and final adventure happens towards the end of school often during the last week of school. It is a great activity to end the school year.

Do you have 1 muse and 4-6 groups that are 1 character or do you have a couple muses and each student gets to be their own character?

There is one muse which is a student for each group of players. The group of playerscan be as large as six students. The muse usually makes a character as well but I warn them that their character needs to participate less because they will be busy running the game and they need to make sure that all characters have a chance to participate.
