A Team-Based Symbolic Logic Game

Designed for students in PHIL 201: Intro to Logic courses at Rutgers University.  Interested in borrowing some of the events?  Send us an email.
What is The Biggest Prover?  It's a semester-long, team-based logic game.  It originated in  Meghan Sullivan's PHIL 201: Intro to Symbolic Logic course, and has since expanded to include Ben Levinstein's course.  Each student belongs to a team: Aristotle's Annihilators, Barcan-Marcus's Manglers, etc.  There are different events in class each day (and some at home) that challenge teams to out-prove, out-translate and outwit one another for prizes and logic glory.  At the end of the course, the team with the most points is awarded the title of Biggest Prover and a handsome reward.  This site keeps track of Biggest Prover stats and enables players to follow the game in real time (critical for game strategy!)
