The effect of substituents on the reactivity in electrophilic aromatic substitution has been organized in a grid to demonstrate the inductive and resonance effects. This scheme can also incorporate the competition between donation and withdrawal. In class games are proposed from which undergraduate students can practice the effects while playing.
