    This is a game I use to review Florida legal research sources and Florida and federal legal research concepts with my Advanced Legal Research class. The game play is, in essence, based on the game Apples to Apples ©. I’ve played the game with the class in small groups. I suggest printing the cards on heavy paper and laminating them to last. The template is based on printing on Avery printable index card template 5388. There are some silly cards based on in-class jokes. For example, bananas comes from this video and the CRAAP test is from this library.

    I use this game in final review classes for the final exam. The call sheet lists the concepts but I always actually describe or define the concept, I don’t just say the word so that students have to know the definition and then find it on their card to win. I used this software to create the cards.
