WARWICK, R.I. — Business Education Publishing announces the release of a new, interactive and fun board game – Keyboarding Trivia – designed to take students temporarily away from the keyboard while reinforcing letter-key memory. The game, designed for middle and high school students as well as adults, keeps students moving across game board spaces which are designed as keys, while answering fun, keyboarding trivia questions.
Questions include: Your right pinky always rests on which key? Which finger is used to strike the “E” key? Manual transmission cars require you to touch me often. Which key am I?
Two – four players compete against each other by correctly answering keyboarding-related trivia questions. Over 240 trivia questions challenge students to recall proper hand and finger placement for a standard QWERTY keyboard through a fun, and educational board game method.
“Keyboarding Trivia is the best invention for teaching and reinforcing keyboarding skills since the keyboard,” Joy Tavano, keyboarding teacher and game beta tester, said.
The game is designed to improve keyboard finger placement through memory and reinforces letter and symbol key placement and retention. It also improves eye-hand coordination and adds variety and competitive fun to the keyboarding classroom.
Each game includes a large format (20″ x 20″) game board; over 240 keyboarding trivia question cards; 1 die; 1 timer; 4 pawns and a detailed instruction booklet.
