In some Thai high school Mathematics classrooms, most students not only need the teachers who are more than the lecturers but they also need more meaningful and more enjoyable learning through the interesting games/activities. To enhance the students’ mathematical interests and learning achievement on Basic Geometry lesson, 6 reinforcement games were used after finished each concept on Basic Geometry in order to give students’ opportunities to review the concepts, to develop conceptual/formula understanding and to drill the practices come together with funny and meaningful activities. The reinforcement games included 1) Distances between Lovers 2) Midpoint Domino 3) Slope Bingo 4) Par or Per tossing (Parallel or perpendicular line) 5) Straight Line Riddles 6) Near or Far. The research study was conducted in 2015 to develop the reinforcement games for enhancing students’ interests and students’ learning achievement. The participants were 40 tenth grade students in the second semester of academic year 2015. The findings showed that 1) students’ mathematical interests; attractiveness, enthusiasm, concentration and participation; improved from moderate level to high level 2) 82.50 percent of participants passed the achievement test. Moreover, the details of the reinforcement games were discussed.
