Ryan Marquez, of Westchester; Brandon Eugling, of North Riverside; and Samantha Wilcox, of North Riverside, were among the students in teacher Mary Testa’s senior-level world literature class at Nazareth Academy in LaGrange Park, where they were challenged to create original board games based on Dante’s Inferno, the first part of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.

Using the text as their guide, students had to create a board, playing pieces and rules for their games and presented the finished products to the class.
