Welcome to blog sponsor Quest for Arete! I was given the opportunity to play Quest for Arete and I was paid for my time in writing this post. Enjoy thinking about ways to add magic to your homeschooling days!
Do you remember those days when your homeschooled kids were little? Such sweet memories!
As you work with older kids, do you ever think about bringing the magic back?
It’s never too late for creating magic in your homeschool.
You just have to have the right tools.
Creating Magic with Quest for Arete
The starter set comes with everything you need to get things going in the world of Arete.
- Game Setting– is a magical world in which you are experimenting in the lab of Antoine Lavoisier
- Game Characters– Learn about Lavoisier and those characters who are the namesake of other scientists.
- Create Spells– Use elements with chemical formulas to make spells and win hands
- Build a Deck– If your kids are into deck building or deck combat games, this is a great game to combine chemical elements and their favorite game mechanic.
- Get Going with a Starter Pack– Unlike other deck combat games, you can get started and keep going with out a lot of trouble. Given there are only a few expansion packs so far, you can get friends involved without them being far behind.
- Expand the World– You can expand your world with the Alchemist and Armorer expansion packs.
- Involve Your Middle & High Schoolers– the game is for 12 years old and up
- Invite Younger Siblings– the quest can be adapted to include younger kids with the help of older siblings and parents.
- Learn Chemical Nomenclature– Quest for Arete teaches the names of the elements along with chemical formulas.
- Practice Strategy– Work on finding a spell and not just any spell but the highest scoring spell within the time you are given.
Other Worlds Create Magic in Your Homeschool
As our they get older, we are always looking for ways to connect with our kids. Especially our teens. How about you?
Our kids speak through story and “other worlds”. For us, creating magic in your homeschool means finding ways to connect through fantasy, magic, and other worlds. For example:
- Stories– We connect through many story worlds at our house! Whether it’s Middle Earth, a future dystopia, Narnia, or a galaxy far away, we share something to talk about through these places.
- Writing– Do you have any writers at your house? I have a few who immerse themselves and build their own story worlds. They share their adventures and other worlds with us.
- Games– We engage a lot in game worlds like Quest for Arete and others.
