Which side will win? It’s up to your students and their ability to make a convincing case to the U.S. Supreme Court. We’re excited to announce the launch of our reimagined Argument Wars. Students still get to argue landmark Supreme Court cases, but now they can access additional strategic opportunities in this exciting online card game. View the game trailer to get a sense of how it works.

Play the game to see the updated characters, try your hand at the new card game format, and check out the new supports for English Language Learners.  

Argument Wars is a great game to help students learn to:

  • Analyze the arguments and outcomes of nine influential Supreme Court cases including Brown v. Board of Education, Miranda v. Arizona, and Texas v. Johnson
  • Evaluate arguments and assess whether reasoning is sound and support is relevant or irrelevant
  • Recognize the role of the Constitution and Supreme Court precedent in deciding cases

We hope you’ll encourage your students to play Argument Wars this summer, along with our other fun and entertaining civics games. And as you start to prepare for back-to-school, use our Game Extension Pack for lessons and activities that reinforce what students learn in the game.
