Vocabulary retention is the ability to store or remember as many words as possible. In order to enhance the vocabulary retention of the students, there are a few ways to be used in teaching vocabulary. One of the ways is by using games in the vocabnlary learning. However, students often forget the meaning of the new words after be taught by their teachers. This study investigates tbe students' achievement in pre-test and post-test. The purpose of this study is to investigate a better way to make tbe vocabulary learning more retainable by using games. All 64 year three students in Sekolah Kebangsaan Bumiputera, Lundu, Sarawak participated in the study. The students were taught in conventional vocabulary learning for the new words in unit 10. After 2 weeks of teaching, a pre-test was carried out. The new vocabulary in unit II of the Year Three English textbook was taught.
