Idea ( Mayby, you can change ) : The title Rules of the Game doesn’t just refer to the game of chess. Waverly learns to apply what she learns about chess to life as well. Think about how the lessons of chess, such as “the tactics between two adversaries are like clashing ideas,” and “It is a game of secrets in which one must show and never tell,” might also apply to other aspects of the story, such as family life, the life of Chinese immigrants in America, or life as a woman in a male-dominated society.
Elements for support the idea:
Point of view
Chess is symbol
Struggle with Chinese culture and immigrants
