To explore whether the use of script board games can better awaken students' emotions in psychology courses, so that students can more intuitively perceive emotions, understand emotions, and achieve teaching results. The stratified random sampling method was used to randomly select 60 college students and divide them into two groups. One group used the script board game for emotional arousal, and the other group used traditional materials for emotional arousal. After that, the two groups completed the SCL-90 scale, and finally collected the factor scores of fear as a single factor analysis of variance for statistical analysis. The scores of fear factors in emotional arousal using traditional materials were significantly higher than those in the blank control group (F (2,60)=12.193, p< 01);The scores of fear factors of emotional arousal using script board games were significantly higher than those of the control group and traditional material group (F (3,90)=6.090, p< 01).As a new type of emotional arousal material, script board game can trigger individual fear more than traditional materials, which provides new materials for the teaching of psychology courses. In the future courses, the chapter on "emotion" can be appropriately used to awaken the students' emotions with the play of board games.
