I think that the game its self and the rules are not fair because Females were not able to play and I know that girls can do want the men can do too, (and must likely too time better). I think that the games were not fair because if you did not win you most likely would die, and if you were girl and you were acting like a boy to get in the games and they found out you would be pushed off the hill/ cliff. If I had to change anything it would be that female would be able to play in the games. I agree on most of the things but not the female couldn’t play, or you would be pushed off the cliff if you lose. My thought of this is that most of these rules and Games is that even though the are doing the Olympics for Zeus and that is why only man could play, but they should just let females play too.
Like Play To said “Necessity is a mother of inventions” Which I think you should let everyone be treated fairly something like that.

Well, I think that, that game I very hard to play first because you have to throw this thing that is very heavy. I disagree with the rule of girls not being part of that game, I understand that its maybe because they think its to heavy for girls. I would like to try throwing the heavy piece. I would also change the rule about girls not playing, I would put everyone is welcome if they think their strong enough.

Well I think the game they play is hard because you have to throw a heavy thing an it is hard to throw. I think that the kids should off just tried but it was on their life so they had to cheat I would have done the same thing. The rules are if you pass your opiates throw then you may when but if you win your opposite may get a serious conceques. I would like to play the game they played in the movie. I don’t agree with all their rules because their rules are crazy! I would have had changed the rule if you lose you will die I will change it into like if you lose pay up.

I would have liked to play the disk game. I don’t agree with any of the rules because one its not fair that women cant play in the Greek Olympics because there were women and also two I don’t agree with the rule that if you lose all five games or even just one you will be thrown off a cliff. I would change the rule that if you lose you would be thrown off a cliff because that isn’t right just because you lose one game I mean come on now everyone makes mistakes. All of the rules need to be changed because none of them are fair and that’s what I think.

Which games would you like to have tried?
The games that I will like to try is when you have to throw a circle thing and see how far you can get it and I will also like to try is fight a person but I really know that guy in the short movie that he will kill me.
What rules do you agree with?
The rules that I will agree with are females could not play in the Olympics and I like that idea for a reason and that reason is that the woman will not get hurt.
Which rules would you change?
What think about the rules and I will change is that the female should play in the Olympics cause the woman’s are strong like man and they can do things like man that is why they should do the Olympics. Also that if they find a woman playing the Olympics games they will I believe kill them or send them to someone. Like for every thing they do like get something from a statue, not following the rules and other things.

The game that I would like to have tried was the tossing thing.
I agree with the penalty rule except when we play we can have detention instead of having death. I would change the rule “ no girls allowed to resale. The parts on were they had to resale would be changed to be girls with girls and boys with boys.

A game is the game when you throw the plate. I rule that I would change is the rule about the girls because I’m a girl and I think its unfair because a girl can do anything a boy can do. Another rule I don’t agree with is the death rule I don’t think people should be killed over little things like hitting a statue with something.

I will be so scared because if I had to face a really big guy I will let my people help or I get training too. The one when the movie played I forgot that one I want to play in it. I will agree with there will be no girls playing like they say before they get crushed on. So that is why they say that girl is not playing that game because they need a lot of training to do.

I think that it will be a great idea to do our own Greek Olympics. I think that we should do the throwing the plate and putting our own game in to it. I do not think we should have the same rules because their rules in cloud killing the loser and we don’t want any one to die so that part is out. What we could do for the game is have four groups of teams and two face off and the loser get eliminated.

I think that the rules are unfair because females should play too, even though everybody knows the boys are going to win. It's unfair because if you break the rules you die and that is a harsh consequence. I think the games that I wanted to play was the wrestling match the most because it's fun to just wrestle people to the ground. The rules I would change would change would be dieing if you broke the rules and having females play because it wouldn't be fair if the females were playing something that the boys liked (even though that might not happen at that time) and we couldn't play.

Well the rules that I will changes is that no girls can play in the
Olympics or will die or instead of killing them they put them some
Place because what if they did not mean to do that and I will like to go to see when they kill the lions and I agree with when they start
To race and they put the wall that the lions or when they are going to race because they can get in a lot of problems with the people
If that happen to one of the people too and I think that the game its self and the rules are not fair because Females were not able to play

My thoughts on the games where:
1. Why are the games so harsh.
2. If you’re a girl why can’t you play?
3. Why do you have to die if you’re a girl and you play?
I don’t agree with any of the rules but I would like to change one rule one rule I would like to change is that girls can play and the “Big Fat Greek Games”. Because girls should be aloud to play it’s not fair for boys to only play. I also think girls shouldn't have to put on a disguise to play in the olypic games.

My thoughts are that it was not fair because to me, it was like discrimination because only men could play the Olympic games and woman could not. I would like to try the game when you have to toss the round thing because it looks easy but it really is not because the plate is made out of metal and I like to do hard stuff on my own. I don’t agree with any of the rules because I believe that it is not fair that if a woman dresses up like a man, and she participates in an Olympic game and if some one finds out that she really is a girl and then she dies, I don’t really think that is not fair. I would change the rule when it says that girls cannot play any games because it is not fair.

My thoughts about the rules are that in the begging that when the guy said if he gets disqualified they would get executed. How come if you get disqualified from a game you would want to kill a couple of children . I would have tried the game that they was using in the cartoon with the plates they were throwing and trying to get to go furthest. I really know all of the rules because they were being very confusing and they had no meaning . I would change the rule of women cannot play the Olympics because it actually looks kind of fun.

My thought about the rules surrounding the games is that they are fair that Sparta should win if glaucos isn’t there and when Sparta said that if Sparta doesn’t win then the two players will be executed and Olympic games will be canceled for ever. I would have tried foot racing. I agree with Athens winning when glaucos wasn’t there and I would change when Sparta players die when Athens win.I would also change the rule that girls cant play in olympic games.

my thoughts of the games are that some people will try to cheat just to win. For the rules i want to know why girls can't play in the Olympic Games there is a female god. I agree with the rule of no cheating because the opponent will try to do anything to win. I would change the rule of no women in the Olympic Games because women would want to be in the Olympic Games.

Nadalia Rowe said...

I think the rules back in Ancient Greece were unfair because women couldn’t participate in the Olympics because of their gender. I would change that law. It think that is not fair because I like sports and that is kind of offensive. If they were caught, they could be executed. If you loss, you would be executed too. I would like to try disc throwing because it looks like fun and it’s a challenge. I think that all the rules are bologna because they’re unfair and uncitizen like.

I think girls should play i the Olympics. Because it would be fair and i agree with the rule u u die if anything is bad.i know the girls can do what every a men can do so that should make new rules

The Olimpic games had unfair rules and challanges that could kill and dishoner some one who lost or possibly died and the fact that a woman can't partisipate is unfair to.

Elina Caban said...

Will my thoughts on the games and the rule is that you have to pay a penalty and the penalty is you have to die. In the ancient times women were not allowed to play in the Olympic games if the women tried to play in the Olympic games they will have to be executed. The game that I will like to try is when you have to throw the disk to see how far you have thrown the disk. The rules I would change is that when you do anything wrong you have to die. Instead you have to have a big penaltiy.

My thoughts on the Ancient Greece Olympics games that it was not fair because the females were not able to play and if Samantha lost they would of got executed and had been fallen of a hill cliff. If I had to change anything on the Olympics games would be let females play and if they lose let the try again until they win. That boy had to go into the statue to find the book so they can win but the judges had got the book back. The game that I would of tried would be the frisbie won when you had to throw the farthest in order for you win. The other game would be the wrestleing match when they had to fight.

I would want to try the wrestling and throwing the magnet… Those seem very hard, and I like challenges.
The games I agree with are the wrestlings, but since women weren’t allowed, I don’t agree with NONE. The rules I would change is that, I would allow women to play with MEN. I would also allow the leaders to choose their competition and the one who will play the games. I would also change the rules for when people “attack” others. Because, it would be too much violence, so instead of killing, I would let them just loose, and go to a lower class.

P.S. I think the games aren’t fair, but the games seem fun. The reason I think the games aren’t fair is because WOMEN weren’t allowed to play. But women are athletic just like MEN… But when it came down to the challenges, Athens and Spartans were hardheaded. The reason they were hardheaded was because, they would keep having war. The way they would stop is if they both get what they want equally. But back to it NOT being fair, it is not fair because if Women were to play with MEN. The women would be executed, and it wouldn’t be fair to the women.
