Volcanic Panic - Playing Volcanic Panic

Volcanic Panic can be played by a student on their own or in a group. It is easy to start, join or host a game. The system automatically does all of the hard work for teachers and parents. It concurrently manages the game play, recalculates the options for each player and automatically delivers Reading optimised for each student and then reports on Questions completed.
