Set up was easy! We created the league and acquired the "invite link". We placed that link on Canvas, our LMS. Students clicked on the link and entered our "code" for the league which required the students to create an account. We used our school email address. We had NO problems working on the iPad as you will see, but some students did open the "Fantasy Geopolitics" site "in Safari".

To keep students interested in the three week game we will:
- Create discussion questions in Canvas
- Require students to trade one country
- Reflect on one current event article from one or more countries that they own
- Create a reflection on the process one to two weeks into the game
The energy and enthusiasm by the students was evident. We look forward to continuing the "gaming" of geopolitics.
