Individual ability differences are an everlasting phenomenon in a classroom. Competitive learning games that aim at drawing students' attention and excitement will inevitably hurt the self-esteem of those students with lower-skill levels. This paper describes the design of a small group competitive classroom game called AnswerMatching. Besides, we propose an approach to resolving the individual ability difference problem, called uneven chance tactic. A pilot study of the game with this tactic is also reported.
