Michael: I think someone who like soccer, running around, and working with 4 other people would love this game.

What are your feelings about this game? Did you enjoy playing it? Would you recommend it?

Michael: I think that the class will like it because it will be a difficult challenge for all of us.

Jared: A big gym would be an appropriate place to play because it can be muddy and slow down the balls outside. I think it must be hard to score because there are two goals and if anyone on another team touches the ball you have to start all over again. I think the class will like it.
